Matthew Moyer
Principal of Rupert Elementary in the Pottstown School District

I grew up in: Pottstown

I now live in: Barto

Family: Wife, Jennifer; daughter, Isabelle, 13; and son, Addison, 11.

Education: Pottstown High School; Shippensburg University; Cabrini College, master's degree in education and principal's certificate.

How I spend my free time: Spending time with family and friends, enjoying my children's sporting events and concerts, playing basketball. Also, outdoor activities like running, camping, any new outdoor adventures. Going to the beach.

Teacher who inspired me: One of the leaders who inspired me is Dr. Jeffrey Sparagana. Dr. Sparagana was a mentor to me as I began my career in Pottstown. He is an outstanding leader, who modeled what it meant to be a servant leader.

As an elementary principal, my goal for students is: My goal is to help prepare students to be successful in life. This means helping them gain the skills they need to pursue their passions in life and become productive citizens. We strive to teach each child the skills they need today to be successful in the future. This requires more than just teaching math and reading. Although they are critical skill areas, we also look to teach our students to be creative thinkers, collaborative problem-solvers and good team players.

Funniest classroom moment: Once a marking period, we visit students at home to recognize them for their achievements. A few years ago on one of our visits, a student's 3-year-old brother became very energized when we pulled up. As we approached the house, he started to jump up and down with excitement. He forgot that he had a bottle of juice in his hand. As he jumped up and down, he sprayed juice all over me.

If I weren't an educator, I'd be: I think it would be a lot of fun to host/co-host a television show. It would be great to interview a variety of different people or host some type of game show. I enjoy interacting with people, and this would provide a great opportunity for this.

You might not know: A few years ago, I went to see the "Live with Kelly" show in New York. There was an opportunity to ask questions, and I was chosen. I was able to be on live television nationwide. A few people even texted me to tell me they just saw me live on television.
