Mr. Matthew Gonnella
I am very excited to be at Jane Addams Middle School for my 10th year of teaching. This year I will be teaching two co-taught math classes during block 2 and 3. I will also be teaching WIN during block 1 on A days and block 4 on B days. Some additional information about myself is after graduating from Eastern Illinois in 2007, I spent two years teaching in Tinley Park. The past six years I have spent in Matteson teaching social studies and math. During this time I earned my Master’s degree from Concordia University in Educational Technology. This school year will also mark my 11th season coaching girls basketball at Andrew High School. I also coach Boys Cross Country and Track. I have been married for 9 years and have two daughters, Olivia 5 and Ashley 2. In my free time I enjoy playing video games, watching/participating in sports and spending time with friends and family.
