My name is Matt Palmer. I have been teaching English Language for St. Paul Public Schools since 2000. I am proud that I have been a staff member at Farnsworth Middle School since 2009. I am also proud, and grateful, for the years I have had working with students and their families here on the east side. This year at Farnsworth I will be teaching eighth graders in co-taught ELA and co-taught Algebra, as well as ELD and Foundations. I look forward to another fulfilling year working with eighth grade students on their English language acquisition!
Outside of school I like to spend time with my wife, who is an SPPS teacher, and two daughters who are SPPS students. We like to travel, and enjoy the local parks and restaurants.
