About Me:

Hello and welcome to kindergarten at Global Arts Plus. My name is Matt Shimon. I began teaching kindergarten for Saint Paul Public Schools in 2011. Prior to this, I spent thirteen years working as a group leader for Discovery Club, the District's before and after-school program. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, gardening, listening to music, and walking with my wife and our two dogs. I look forward to the school year and to getting to know you all!
