Please join us in welcoming Matt Tevlin as the new Education Technology Specialist in the Office of Catholic Schools! He began his role on October 31.
Matt has lived in Grand Rapids all his life and comes to us from Kentwood Public Schools, where he taught middle school and high school history and coached varsity football for the last 11 years. He attended St. Paul the Apostle during elementary school and this is his first opportunity to return to Catholic schools. He is currently pursuing his master’s degree in Educational Technology at Central Michigan University and when he saw this opening with the diocese, he knew he had to apply. Matt says, “I am most looking forward to helping teachers in the diocese use technology as efficiently as possible, help them make engaging lessons, and make their lives easier.”
"The Office of Catholic Schools enthusiastically welcomes Matt into the role of educational technology specialist. Our alliance of Catholic schools relies upon a system of shared softwares and services that help to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of Catholic school operations,” says Dave Faber, Superintendent of Catholic Schools. “In this role Matt's expertise in educational technology as well as his friendly, collaborative spirit will bless our schools' ability to enhance their administrative and instructional systems."
With the increased emphasis in digital learning, Matt’s job will be crucial in providing our Catholic schools with the best technological support and training possible. Please keep Matt in your prayers as he transitions into the extremely important position.
