Mr. Matt Grossman

I have pretty much lived in Macon County my entire life.  I grew up in Mt. Zion, went to Holy Family, St. Teresa and Richland Community College.  I graduated from the University of Illinois in 2000 with a degree in Landscape Architecture.  I am a HUGE Cubs and Bears fan and have a love for anything outdoors.  

After working as a Landscape Architect for 10 years in St. Louis and Central Illinois, I decided to pursue a career in education.  I attended Millikin University and started teaching 7th grade Math at Thomas Jefferson Middle School in 2009.  From 2015-2017, I was an Instructional Technology Coach while also pursuing my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from EIU.  

When I’m not at school I spend the majority of my time with my family.  My fiancee is a nurse here in Decatur.  Together we have 4 children - 2 daughters and 2 sons - so we stay pretty busy!
