Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome everyone! My name is Matt McKinney and this is my 8th year at Highland Park High School. I’m excited to not only be a part of this great school but to be a part of the community as well. The courses I am teaching this year are Physical Science as well as Anatomy and Physiology. Science has always fascinated me and I hope to instill that fascination and curiosity in my students. In addition to science I am also a Link Crew coordinator and Assistant Nordic Ski Coach for Highland Park.
I have an undergraduate degree from the University of Minnesota and a Masters of Education at Augsburg University.
I am also an avid outdoors person. I love canoeing, camping, hunting, and fishing. I have a 9 year old German Shorthair Pointer named Lucy who keeps me active and on the go all the time. I am also the co-coordinator of Link Crew (The freshman transition team). I am looking forward to getting to know the Highland Park Community, the students and their families.
