Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Matthew Swanson

This is my 3rd year working at West Port, but my 1st year working as a full-time teacher. Previously I worked here as a paraprofessional. Having loved what I was doing, and loved working at West Port, I pursued my degree so I could become a full-time math teacher. In addition to teaching, I am also the Boy's Cross Country Coach and the Distance Coach for Track & Field. 


I was born in Rockford, Illinois and moved to Florida at the age of 5 and have never left Marion County since. Outside of school, I also have a loving wife and 3 children - 2 boys, and 1 girl.


I try to make my class enjoyable and build strong relationships with my students. If you pay attention in class and take proper notes, you should have no problems in my class! If you do have any questions or feel like you need extra help I am always available in my classroom, or via email as well.


Together we will have a fun and successful year! GO WOLF PACK!
