Matt McIntyre, K-7th Grade Physical Education Teacher, Crooksville Exempted Village Schools

The following testimonial was shared by Crooksville Exempted Village Schools in selecting Matt McIntyre as a 2015 Celebrate Teaching Distinguished Educator. 

Matt Mcintyre exeplifies what a teacher should be. He personalizes his classroom to meet the needs of his learners on a daily basis by having students set personal goals, keep reflective data sets, and challenging them to recognize the relevance of personal fitness to daily life. Students "LOVE" Matt's classes and are highly engaged and motivated when in his classroom. 

Matt is supported by a professional learning community of his peers who work collaboratively as a teacher-based team. The team, with his leadership, is an integral part of scheduling students into their non-core classes with schedule design. The team studies best practices and methods to support colleagues in the core areas with curricular connections in the classroom.
