Mr. Johnson

Matt Johnson is an Apple fanboy, a technology aficionado, and is currently trying to design and build a simulation in Python that would finally answer the question: how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop (….ok that last one he made up). Matt is excited to be joining Old Colony (OC) and the Computer Science shop for the 2019-2020 school year. Prior to OC he spent two years as an instructor at South Shore Technical in the Information Technology shop; prior to teaching he spent nine years working at Apple.

Inside the classroom Matt wants to help create lifelong self-learners, so he attempts to “guide from the side” rather than “pull from the front.” “I want my students to feel safe, supported, and they are in the driver seat of their own learning,” Matt answered when asked about his philosophy to teaching. “I also love to laugh and have a good time. Learning should be fun. So if we’re not having fun, we’re doing something wrong.”

Outside of the classroom Matt enjoys spending time with his family, catching up on the latest technology news and information, and engaging in personal coding projects. “Deep down, I’m a just super big nerd, ” says Johnson. “I love all the classic nerd stuff: technology, coding, Star Wars, you name it. But I also love art, music, and visual storytelling. Really it’s at the intersection of technology and liberal arts where I find myself most engaged and excited.”
