Rhoades

Hi my name is Matt Rhoades and I am one of the Third Grade Teachers at CPJMA. Although I’ve been a teacher in the district for 20 years, this will be my second year at Crown Point Junior Music Academy.  I have a Bachelors degree in Speech Communication from San Diego State University. My Multiple Subject Teaching Credential  and Masters degree in Educational Technology were obtained from National University.  I have my GATE certification and the Intel Certification for Educational Learning. In my 20 years of teaching, I have taught grades 2-6 and have been a Magnet Resource Teacher. My previous assignment, prior to coming to CPJMA, was teaching 5th graders in Scripps Ranch.

I grew up just across the West Bay in Mission Beach and now reside in the Point Loma area.  I have always been very active in the water. I surf when I can find time, write children stories, and keep koi fish in my backyard. Music has been a hobby of mine for many years. I dabble with the guitar, drums, and a little piano. Sometimes I get around to writing songs.

I have three children (7th, 10th, and first year college). So you could say I have "been there" when discussing the daily going-ons of the elementary school kid.  I am looking forward to working with the wonderful students here at CPJMA.

For every child I have the privilege to teach, it is my hope to create a positive, safe and fun learning environment .  That is my goal as a teacher. We all have a part to play in that process in helping our students to excel in their learning and becoming good productive members of our society . Together we can make a difference.
