I am Matt Bailey. I am in my first year at Hill Country Middle School this 2019-20 school year. This will be my 10th year of teaching. Before coming to HCMS I taught for 6 years at West Ridge Middle School here in Eanes. In 2016 I left the district for 3 years and taught in Wisconsin (2 years) and Colorado (1 year). I am extremely excited and happy to be back in Eanes and I'm looking forward to a great year as a Hill Country Cougar!
I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Superior with a bachelors degree in education. I began my career in northern Wisconsin and Minnesota as a special education paraprofessional. After 4 years of working there I moved to Austin, TX and began teaching full time. I have taught special education, Texas & American history, and physical education. Teaching is my number one passion.
When I am not in the classroom you can find me outdoors. I love hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, and traveling. I am a big sports fan that loves to play and watch almost every sport, especially basketball. I am always rooting on my Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Brewers, and all the University of Wisconsin Badgers....however, since moving to Austin, I have taken in the UT Longhorns as my second favorites.
