Mr. Matthew Gonnella

I am very excited to be at Jane Addams Middle School for my 11th year of teaching.  This year I will be teaching one co-taught math class and two general ed math classes. Some additional information about myself is after graduating from Eastern Illinois in 2007, I spent two years teaching in Tinley Park.  I spent six years in Matteson, IL 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 12th season coaching girls basketball at Andrew High School.  I also coach Boys Cross Country and Track.  I have been married for 10 years and have two daughters, Olivia 6 and Ashley 3.  In my free time I enjoy playing video games, watching/participating in sports and spending time with friends and family.
