My name is Matt Floyd and this is my 3rd year at Carson Jr. High School. I will be your student’s 7th grade English Language Arts instructor this year. If your student is in my class for Period 1, Period 6, or Period 8 then your student will be team taught by both Mrs. Karla Landeis and myself.

I was born in Warner Robins, GA but have spent most of my life in Arizona. I went to high school in Tombstone, AZ before coming to Tempe to attend Arizona State University.

I decided to become an English teacher because I truly believe the skills of argument, discussion, and analysis that we help our students develop now, will be ever more so important in the future.

I have a number of goals for the year, for all the classes I am teaching, that serve me to give your student the best education possible.

These goals are:

  • To build a community of writers and readers that share their thoughts and ideas.
  • To actively discuss real world topics that impact the students.
  • To analyze poetry, novels, myths, articles, and other types of literature and writing.
  • To help students grow academically and as individuals.

I’m looking forward to this year and I encourage you to reach out to me if you have any questions at the contact information above.
