Staff Testimonial

"I have been the Construction Skills teacher and coach for 22 years for MCUSD2. During that time I am proud to say the students and I have built 21 amazing homes. The Mattoon school district has been a wonderful place to work for me and my wife. Also a great place for our children to go to school and play sports. Mattoon offers many opportunities for both its staff and its students. MCUSD2 has given me the opportunity of fulfilling a dream of being able to work in construction while also having the opportunity of being both a basketball and track coach."
