England is in his 10th year teaching at RRMS and was nominated by school principal Megan Rose.
“Matt is an effective leader who goes above and beyond both in and out of the classroom,” Rose said. “He has a tremendous impact on our students and prepares them for the next level through his instruction. This award and recognition are well-deserved.”
In addition to his teaching duties, England is also the coordinator of the RRMS essentials team, which includes band, choir, fitness, art and college and career readiness. He set up a Makers Space at RRMS and moved an unused television screen into the main hallway where he created a Google slide presentation. This has allowed RRMS staff to add announcements and post important information to students.
For being recognized as a Teacher of the Month, England will receive an assortment of Partners in Education merchandise from the Ohio Lottery.
The Ohio Lottery Teacher of the Month program is designed to recognize outstanding faculty for contributions to their school, excellence in the classroom, leadership, innovation, community, involvement, dedication and work on behalf of Ohio students in grades K-12.
