Middle School Computer Teacher
Hello! My name is Matt Zigner. This is my 31st year teaching and my 25th year at Middle Township.
I currently teach Computers.
My dad was in the U.S. Navy when I was born. By the time I was 10 years old, I had lived in Florida, Puerto Rico, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. After my dad retired, we moved to Bloomsburg, PA, where I went to college.
I joined the Navy upon graduating high school, and I was also accepted at Bloomsburg University of PA to study Elementary Education. This would have been an impossible mixture of things to do, except that my Navy duty was in the Active Reserves. Regardless, it was a challenge to be a successful sailor & student at the same time.
While in the Navy, I got to do & see some interesting things. I served in California, Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey & Spain. I even spent time aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Independence.
In 1992, I received my Honorable Discharge for 8 years of service.
I received my Bachelors in Education with a minor in mathematics from Bloomsburg University in 1988. I married my college sweetheart, Jane, and we moved to southern New Jersey that summer. In the past 31 years, I've taught 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, & 8th Grades! I am enjoying my current assignment teaching Computers.
My wife & I celebrated our 32nd anniversary this past summer. We have two children. Tom is 22 & Sarah is 19. We love to go to the beach, surf, kayak, play video games, and ride our bikes together.
I desire to help your child make positive changes in their abilities, and attitudes, regarding technology.
Please don't hesitate to contact me.
