About Sr. Mateo

    My name is Matthew Paul Proulx, but my students know me as Sr. Mateo. 

    I am originally from Crookston, MN. 


    My wife Danielle and I have been married since 2012. 

    We have 2 children; Elena and Henry.

    I have two brothers: Brent and my identical twin, Mark. 


    I graduated from Crookston High School.

    I received my bachelor's degree from Saint John's University and majored in Speech Communications and Spanish. 

    I have my Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) from Hamline University in St. Paul. 


    I volunteered with the Peace Corps in Honduras. I worked with coffee farmers in the Sierra de Agalta mountain range. 

    I worked as an education volunteer for Heifer International at Overlook Farm in Rutland, Massachusetts.

    I have been teaching in St. Paul since 2009. 


    I love baking and cooking. My specialties are scones and risotto. 

    I also enjoy camping, hiking, running and biking. 

    I LOVE reading. Some of my favorite authors include: Barbara Kingsolver, Suzanne Collins, Donald Miller and most recently George R.R. Martin!
