Matt Fitzpatrick is grateful for the opportunity to work with adult learners and facilitate their success in the Pre-College department, the Youth Success Program, and Gorge Literacy.
He started his career working in adult education at a Benedictine monastery running their GED® and ESOL programs. This fulfilling experience inspired him to enroll at Portland State University where he received his Masters in Adult Education. After graduating, he worked as a writing and math instructor in a Trio program (a program for first generation college students) and a Vet's Upward Bound program. During that time, he also managed volunteers for a literacy organization while teaching in a GED program at a community college.
Matt finds rejuvenation and peace in the woods and tries his best to stay in one place though he struggles to do so as a former Army brat.
