Mr. Matt Hilton
Dear Mitchell Families,
To tell you a little bit about myself, I currently live in Tecumseh with my wife, two children and our yellow lab named Hippie. I am a graduate of Hope College where I earned my teaching certificate and I also hold a master's degree in Educational Leadership from Michigan State University. I began my teaching career in the Holland Public Schools where I taught 1st & 4th grade before becoming a K-3rd grade literacy coach. My family and I then moved to Ann Arbor where I've worked for 8 years as a Reading Intervention teacher - 6 of those years right here at Mitchell. In 2014 I became the Assistant Principal here at Mitchell. Outside of school, I love to exercise and spend time with my family and friends.
The 2017-18 school year marks my first year as Principal at Mitchell School. I really enjoy working with the students, teachers and families that make up the Mitchell community. The most important aspect of my work here at Mitchell is to build solid relationships with students, teachers and families while working collaboratively to achieve our goal of educational excellence. I feel very lucky to be working alongside the Mitchell School staff. We have a lot to be proud of at Mitchell. If you have questions, please feel free to get in touch with me by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
