My Name is Matt Linsacum and I started teaching at Hayden High School in 2015. I am recent graduate from Black Hills State University in Spearfish South Dakota. The first thing that I want to say is that I am super proud to be a Hayden Tiger. I was born in raised in this valley and knew that when I graduated college that this is where I wanted to be. I have a lot of history in the valley and in Hayden. My Dad started his career in Hayden, where he taught Physical Education and was a football and wrestling coach. Now I am starting my career as a PE/Health teacher and assisting in high school football and hopefuly wrestling as well.
My goal as a physical education teacher is to provide our students the tools they need to live a healthy life, as well as promote the importance lifelong fitness as they move on to achieve great things outside of school. I will provide them with many different opportunities to grow as an individual as well as a productive member of society. Studies have shown that a quality physical and health education has a direct correlation to better testing grades. If students are healthy, they miss less school and if they miss less school they receive more quality time in the classroom.
