Mr. Timothy Matlack
Middle Senior High School Assistant Principal
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.
