Mr. Matthew Wheatley
Mathematics 7, Regents Algebra 1
I have been in education for 11years, teaching high school mathematics and sciences; I was in the solar and geothermal energy fields for more than twenty years before teaching. I had a broad career as a Registered Professional Engineer in mechanical engineering. I worked briefly in mechanical packaging design on intelligence satellites, then in the solar and geothermal energy industries for twenty years.
I entered into teaching to give back to the community, and to have a chance for a fun job when my family and I moved to the Geneva area to be nearer to my wife’s family. I have found education to be a great field. I have four children, ages 17, 21, 25, and 27, that keep me in touch with the youth of today, and I plan to continue teaching until my youngest is out of college.
