Mr. Matthew Bates
Qualification-B.A. in Journalism, minor in English from DePaul University. Master of Arts - Teaching from DePaul University.

I look forward to teaching at St. Edward School because….

The school has an amazing reputation and they have been very welcoming to me and other St. Cornelius families. Their small class sizes allow for more personal attention to students, and their technology integration helps ensure students are prepared for high school.

Outside interests (fun facts):

In no particular order:
I have three kids and a dog. 
I converted to Catholicism as an adult.
Teaching is my second career.
I moved to Chicago as an adult, and I am neither a Sox nor a Cubs fan.
I like to read, write, go camping, and spend time with my family.

Other involvement with the school:

None yet, but hopefully some soon!
