speakerWhat People Are Saying

I do whatever it takes to engage the students. -- Matt Panozzo

Mr. Panozzo is an excellent teacher, professional and a champion for children. He sees each student as a unique and valued individual. His approach to each and every student is “how can I help you become the best you can be”. His classroom is where students want to be each day and his track record of student success shows that he builds relationships that directly foster achievement. -- University Supervisor

Plain and simple, Matt Panozzo’s unconventional style captivates the students’ attention leading to authentic engagement in learning. I have never been so comfortable with handing over my classroom to a student teacher, but with Matt I know my students’ best interests are in his heart. Matt understands that the students need added attention and they learn by using many different methods. Instead of just shoving information their way, he makes learning fun, even at the cost of being silly or acting things out. -- Cooperating Teacher
