Mr. Rousek - Science

Hello, my name is Matthew Rousek and I'm the Science Teacher for Honors 7th grade and Physical Science teacher at Bryan Middle.  I have been teaching in OPS thirteen years and have loved every minute of my time here at Bryan.  I attended the University of Nebraska Lincoln for my undergraduate degree, and graduated from UNO in 2008 with my Master of Science.

When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my wife outdoors.  We enjoy hiking, biking, camping, and traveling during the summers.  The thing I like most about teaching is watching how well students are able to thrive in an organized and structured classroom based on procedures and routines!  It makes me smile when I see students running many of our daily classroom activities without being given a single direction.
