In addition to being the co-founder/Chief Product Officer at TeacherMatch, a company designed to make teacher hiring more data driven, Matt Curtis has served successfully as a classroom teacher, counselor, and school administrator. Most recently, he was the co-founder and head of school at Thrive Academy, a one-room schoolhouse for the 21st Century.
While Matt holds several advanced degrees, including a PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he struggled with school during his younger years. His experiences across numerous schools demonstrated that static curriculum and rigid methods fail to meet the needs of many students. As a result, Matt has focused his career on advancing education to more effectively cater to individual students’ interests and abilities. He is excited to join the Transeo team and support schools in expanding student learning and extending it beyond the classroom walls.
