Meet Matt Ward ’00, who teaches Integrated Studies and social studies and coaches football and lacrosse. Matt was a Fenn Fellow in 2009-2010.
Q: What drew you to Fenn in 2014?
A: A strong family connection [Matt’s parents are Headmaster Jerry Ward and Lorraine Garnett Ward] and my amazing experience as a student at the School.
Q: What do you enjoy most about teaching here?
A: I love the collegial atmosphere and the joy that the school experience brings to the boys.
Q: What do you hope boys will come away with after being in your classes?
A: I hope they come away with an appreciation for the lessons history has to offer and a deeper understanding of themselves as students and people.
Q: What are your passions and interests outside of teaching?
A: I love music, reading, and playing sports, and I enjoy spending time with my wife, Courtney McManama Ward, and my dog (who is like my child), a black lab named Nala.
