My name is Matt Keenan (also known as Profe in class) and I am very excited to be a part of community at Big Sky High School! While I am new to the school I have been working in education for the past decade. Right after completing my undergraduate degree from James Madison University in Spanish and Latin American History I joined the Peace Corps and spent two and a half years working on community development projects in rural Nicaragua. Upon returning to the States I moved to Missoula and worked in mental health and for the Flagship program for several years running after-school programs at Franklin Elementary. I then obtained my teaching license and Master's in Curriculum & Instruction from Montana State University and took a job teaching Spanish at a private, therapeutic boarding school in the Flathead Valley. After six years of teaching I assumed the role of Head of School there and worked in education administration for three years. Now, I am happy to return to the classroom and get back to working directly with students, my true passion, while also pursuing my doctorate in Education Leadership, also from Montana State.
When I am not at school I love spending time with my family, and my two young boys keep my wife and I very busy! We all love biking, camping, playing music, and enjoying all of the wonderful things that make Missoula such a great place to live!
