Mr. Montroy chosen as Marvin Ridge Teacher of the Year for 2014

Nominated by his peers and selected by an interview committee, Social Studies teacher and football coach Matthew Montroy is the 2014-2015 Teacher of the Year for Marvin Ridge High School.

This is Mr. Montroy’s seventh year of teaching, all of which have been as a Maverick. He is passionate about learning and reaching students on a personal level as well communicating about history. Through the years, he has taught a variety of courses, from Civics to AP US History, but this year he is teaching a course he truly loves and helped establish here at Marvin Ridge, Cold War History. “The fact that the Cold War sets up our current history makes it extremely relevant. The course allows me to teach students about events that shape our world today in hopes that we do not repeat the mistakes of the past. ” No worries, though, he will pick up with AP US History again in the Spring.
