Meet Mr. Matt

My name is Matthew Bernstein.  I am a 2007 graduate cum laude from Bridgewater State where I received my Bachelors Degree in Physical Education/ Motor Developmental Therapy with a minor in Psychology. In 2012, I received my Masters in Education from Fitchburg State. I have been teaching/ coaching students with and without disabilities since 2008. I have worked in therapeutic day programs, residential programs, and in public education. Since 2013, I have been teaching Adaptive Physical Education for the Brockton Public Schools in Brockton, Massachusetts.

I advocate for all students with or without a disability. Every student deserves a free and equitable education in the least restrictive environment possible. I look at the quality of a student’s work over the quantity. My mindset is what can a student do rather than what a student is currently unable to do. It is important to have high/realistic expectations for students with disabilities. All students can succeed when provided with the support, education, and tools to allow them the ability to independently access the general physical education curriculum.
