Matthew Schneck

Matthew Schneck is in his sixth year of teaching at East Village High School, where he teaches Government, Economics, and U.S. History.

Matthew holds a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from San Diego State University, and is currently working toward a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of San Diego. He knew he wanted to go into education since an early age, because he always admired his father who was a chemistry teacher.

Other than teaching a number of subjects, what else do you love doing at East Village High School?

I’m deeply committed to the success of East Village, more than just academic-wise. I organize student recruiting efforts, I serve as advisor for the Anime club, I sit on the School Site Council, I coordinate district and state standardized testing, and I chair the Social Studies Department. Oh! And I am the school’s Association Representative for San Diego Education Association (SDEA).

When you’re not running around the school, what do you do with your little free time?

I was born and raised in the Bay Area, so I enjoy going back home and visiting family on the weekends. I also like to read about political news and binge watch TV shows. Actually, an interesting fact about me is that I am fluent in Spanish, because I was raised in a Spanish-speaking household by my mother who is originally from Guatemala.
