NAME: Matthew Koeppen
TITLE: Science Teacher, Rosemont Middle School
YEARS WITH NPS: 2
WHAT’S THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?
Transforming the raw energy of students into excitement about real-world science and helping them take charge of their educations.
IF YOU COULD TELL THE WHOLE COMMUNITY ONE THING ABOUT NPS, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
My proclamation for the community would be that the next generation of learners from NPS is ready to surmount any challenge set before them, and that the world WILL be a better place because of who they are; as an educator, I see their growth daily.
WHAT’S SOMETHING YOUR COWORKERS DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Something my coworkers do not know about me is that I enjoyed climbing the pyramids at Teotihuacan while in Mexico for a study abroad program through the College of William and Mary.
WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK YOU READ OR MOVIE YOU SAW, AND WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS?
The last book I read was Origins: The Evolution of Continents, Oceans and Life, and this is a must-read for any of my colleagues who have a passion for earth science.
