Mr. Timothy Matlack

Middle Senior High School Assistant Principal

  • Mr. Timothy Matlack, Middle-Senior High, Assistant principal, Director of Athletics    I grew up in Burlington, New Jersey with my parents and younger brother.  In my youth, I fell in love with swimming and was a varsity level swimmer through high school and college.  After graduating from Elizabethtown College with a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education and English, I worked as a long term substitute in Middletown Area School District for a year teaching 9th and 10th grade English.  I also moved directly into coaching and served as an assistant for Elizabethtown College swim team.

       After the year-long sub position expired, I accepted a position teaching 9th and 10th grade English at Ocean City High School and served as their swim team head coach.  At the end of that year, I moved to Berks County to marry my wife, Jennifer.

       I was hired to teach 7th, 9th, and 10th grade English at Antietam Middle-Senior High School in June 2007.  I spent the next ten years teaching 7th, 9th, and 11th grade English.  I also served as an assistant and then head coach for Wyomissing High School’s swim team.

       In 2010, I earned my Master of Science in Education from Alvernia University.  Four years later, I returned to Alvernia and in the summer of 2015, I completed my Principal’s Certification.

       As a member of the Antietam School District for the last ten years, I have worked closely with students and staff and have never regretted a single moment.  Over the last two years, I have seen a great swell of energy building in the district and community to drive positive change for the sake of the students we serve.  I am ecstatic over the opportunity to play a role in this improvement effort both in the realm of fostering our athletic programs as Director of Athletics and our academic programs as Assistant Principal.  I look forward to seeing every student grow as a learner, an athlete, and a person.
