Hi, my name is John Strittmatter! I have been teaching for 17 years. I love teaching in the Cambria Heights School District which is where I live, and am also an alumni. I grew up on a dairy farm outside of Carrolltown. The lessons I learned on the farm about character and work ethic have strongly molded me into the person I am today! I am married to my wife Stephanie and have three sons; Jackson, Jace, and Jaden. Our family loves being outside hunting, fishing, and loving every day! : ) We are also big sports fans and love to cheer on the Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins.
Teachers can make a big difference in the lives of children. I really hope to instill a love of learning and to develop a curiosity in students that they want to challenge themselves to seek out new information and learning opportunities. I am very excited to work with students this year to motivate, inspire and help them reach their goals! We will be doing many exciting and challenging activities throughout the school year and will be learning many new things!
I have linked a motivational video from Kid President that is sure to motivate you throughout this school year!
