Hi, I am Mike Mathiason, the new PBIS/SEL Coordinator in District 742. Although I am in a new role, I am no stranger to 742. This is my 11th year in the district. During that time, I worked as a 4th/5th grade classroom teacher at Discovery, Talahi, and Lincoln, and spent the last 2 years as an SEL coach at Lincoln. Above is my wife Sarah, who is currently the media specialist at Discovery, and our 3 beautiful daughters, Julianna(6), Evelyn(3), and Clara(3 months). We love spending time outdoors, watching sports, and being with our families. I was an undergraduate at SCSU and completed my student teaching at Clearview elementary. I am a graduate student of St. Mary’s University (Educational Leadership) and also Concordia University (Ed.S Educational Leadership and K-12 Administrator license). In my new role I will be supporting PBIS and SEL across the district. This looks like supporting restorative practices at all of our secondary schools, and also supporting conscious discipline work alongside our conscious discipline coordinator for our elementary sites. I will also be facilitating monthly meetings with our PBIS/SEL district teams and also our BRS staff and support rooms. I look forward to working with all the wonderful staff that we have here in 742. Wishing you all the best on a great year! # 742 Together!
