Welcome aboard everyone! My name is Matthew Holcomb, and I teach eighth grade ELA/Social Studies. I am a fifth-year teacher, having graduated from Appalachian State University in 2017. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, playing tennis, and hiking.
The best time to contact me is Monday-Friday from 9:45-10:30 or 1:30-2:15 (these are my planning periods). I can be reached by phone at (336) 551-1160 ext. 237, or through e-mail at [email protected]
I expect students to come to class on time, prepared, and with a CAN-DO attitude. I emphasize the notion of having a can-do attitude, because it is crucial that students maintain a positive outlook on their education. I will never give up on a student's academic achievement, and in turn, expect them not to give up on themselves either.
Materials needed for class: a binder full of paper, and pens/pencils. If you use a pen, make sure it contains either blue or black ink. Colored pencils are also a suggested item.
Let's have a great year at Starmount Middle!
