Matt Filippini

My name is Matt Filippini and this is my 5th year at Dishman Hills HS and 12th year teaching Business & Marketing Education, and Social Studies at the High School level. I really got into Business & Marketing in college and just fell in love with the idea that through Career and Tech Ed classes, it could make a difference in students’ lives - with a career and an education pathway, students/people could afford the American Dream. I love seeing the transformation of every student that comes into my classroom and then leaves our school. It is an amazing honor and joy for a student to analyze their educational journey and say, “I now have a future, because my teachers opened up my eyes and showed me my future.”

Family – I have an amazing wife, Stephanie, who is a high school counselor at Shadle Park HS and an incredibly fun-loving little daughter, Chloe.
