Hi! My name is Matt O’Brien and I am extremely excited to start a new chapter
of my teaching career at Cambridge Park! I think this year is going to be an
awesome journey for everyone involved! I’m looking forward to the adventures
the future holds and I can’t wait to meet all of you. Before we meet, read below
to learn about me! Although I teach in the Matawan-Aberdeen School District,
I currently reside in Point Pleasant, New Jersey with my girlfriend, Jess (who
happens to be a teacher at the middle school!). I grew up in Brick, New Jersey
and attended Brick Memorial High School where I played football and basketball.
After high school, I furthered my education at a small college in Pennsylvania
called Lebanon Valley College. There, I studied Early Childhood Education and
was also a four year athlete in basketball! Go Dutchmen! Prior to coming to
Cambridge Park, I was a 2nd grade teacher just down the road at Cliffwood
Elementary School; I taught there for two full years. Before coming to Matawan,
I was a paraprofessional at the middle school level at Bradley Beach Elementary
school, which was a great experience! I am so excited to meet you and can’t wait
for a FANTASTIC year!
