Greetings! I am Matt Rutherford and I make the move to 7th grade Introduction to Information Technology, a brand new elective for the 2020-2021 school year. This will be my 22nd year at Bryan Middle and 23rd year overall. I’m looking forward to working with the 7th grade students in pursuit of technology knowledge. Like President Obama stated, “Don’t just play on your phone; Learn to program it.” I grew up moving around the country and Europe as the son of a career Air Force veteran. As part of that experience, I lived in Italy for 4 years and a return trip to England. Since I grew up in a military family I attended several schools, finishing high school at Bellevue East. I have degrees from Metro Community College and University of Nebraska at Omaha (Bachelors and Masters). I am married and have 2 children. In my spare time I like to read, play baseball, softball and bowl. This year will bring some interesting challenges and I look forward to working through them and learning with all of you.
