Hello, My Name is Matt.

Matthew Cornell, 25, born and raised in Southend on Sea, Essex. Highly motivated teacher, constantly expanding skillsets in both design and development.

I am currently training on the Southend SCITT, where I spend most of my time picking up as many ways of keeping students interested as I can.

I have been indecisive my entire life, I have never known exactly what I wanted to do for a living. Inbetween my graduation and 2015 I went into different areas, trying my hand at anything from design, to development, and to admin. I could never pin down exactly what I wanted to do, until I stepped foot in classroom again for the first time in 2015.
