Matt Carey







Instructional Assistant

Professional Background
I earned an associates degree at Northern Virginia Community College and was working towards my bachelor’s degree in history. I have worked at Arlington Traditional School since 1997 as an instructional assistant. I have worked across grade levels delivering instruction in reading, social studies, math and science. I hope to instill perseverance and help each individual student achieve their maximum potential regardless of ability.

Personal Interests
In my spare time, I enjoy sports (Redskins, Lakers, Nats and Caps). I also enjoy traveling, when time presents itself, and I love movies and television shows.

Literary Connection
The old man and the sea was one of my favorite books growing up. Hemingway is an iconoclastic author whose austere personality is uniquely American.
