Matt Braun – Lower School Art

Matt Braun

Biography

I have been working as an Art teacher at international schools for the past three years. I lived in Mumbai, India for two years where I had the privilege to teach Pre Primary through Primary Art at an International Baccalaureate school as well as working with various non-profit organizations within India. I have spent the last year in Singapore teaching Art and learning more about the Reggio Emilia teaching approach and how I can incorporate this philosophy into my own practice. 

Outside of teaching, I am an avid painter and printmaker. I also enjoy traveling and spending time in nature.

Why do you teach? What is the impact you hope to make on students?

As an art educator, I truly believe in the endless possibilities of a child and their imagination. By sharing my love of art with others, I hope to inspire my students to be their best selves. Through fostering curiosity, creative problem solving and critical thinking skills, I feel that all children can be successful inside and outside of the art room. 

Why Roycemore?

I was very excited about Roycemore School’s dedication to progressive education and student centered learning. I am thrilled to be continuing my journey with the Roycemore community and am looking forward to returning to the Midwest!
