Matthew Peak


Hi! My name is Mr. Peak and this is my seventh year teaching in Parsons, and my third year teaching first grade. 

I love first grade and all the exploring, learning, and fun we get to have!

I love to read and I love to teach reading!

 We will use our iPads and our SMARTBoard every day as learning tools to make our learning adventures more exciting!

I grew up in Parsons and attended Lincoln School during my kindergarten to 5th grade years, I have been a Viking for a long time! 

Go Big Blue....Go Vikings!!!

I married my beautiful wife Melissa 25 years ago and we have three wonderful sons.

 Michael is a sophomore at LCC, Mason is a junior, and Marcus is in 7th grade.

I have a masters degree in instructional technology from Fort Hays State University and love integrating technology into everything that we do in the classroom. I am also a Google for Education Certified Level one and Two Instructor, and a Google Certified Trainer.

I can't wait to spend the next year learning and growing with you!

One hundred years from now,
it will not matter what kind of car I drove,
what kind of house I lived in,
how much money was in my bank account
nor what my clothes looked like.
But the world may be a better place because
I was important in the life of a child.
