Teachers - Junior High - Science & Math Specialist
My name is Matt Huntley and I am a teacher at Cold Lake High School! Team-building, cooperation, and hard work are as much a part of my favourite activities as they are a part of the classroom in which I see myself participating and teaching. I hope to bring this aspect of team-building into the classroom. I feel that if everyone is working together, more will be learned and students will achieve added enjoyment from learning.
Outside of academics, my passion in life is sport. I have been a competitive soccer player all my life, and have coached soccer in the past as well. I am also a dedicated, sponsored, and provincially-ranked squash player and coach. This year I will be coaching the Sr. Boys’ volleyball team, JV Girls’ Basketball, and Girls’ rugby.
I completed a Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics at the University of Calgary and a Bachelor of Education at the University of Lethbridge. The final part of my education degree was completed at Cold Lake High School, under the supervision of Roland Dargis. After I completed my degree I was hired on at Cold Lake High School as a grade 9 Math and Science teacher. I am happy to continue my career here with the friendly staff and students.
I have been in many different fields before completing a degree in Mathematics, such as kinesiology. I was also an electrician’s apprentice, and began tutoring math for some family friends while I was an electrician. Tutoring always brought a smile to my face and I saw how I was able to make a difference in that one student’s future education. This experience is what gave me the passion to complete my Mathematics and Education degrees; inspiring young individuals to be life-long learners is the reason that I am in the teaching profession.
