Dean of Culture and Instruction 10-12
Rebecca Matt grew up in Southern Oklahoma and is a proud older sister to five younger brothers. She earned her undergraduate degree in Education from the Southeastern Oklahoma State University. From there, she taught at Oklahoma City public schools for eight years while earning her Graduate Degree in Education from the University of Central Oklahoma. In 2014, she joined the Teach for America Central Oklahoma staff. She was an instructional coach for grades pre-k to 12th grade across several Oklahoma City districts. Through Teach for America, she heard about St. HOPE’s mission for students and was instantly hooked. She moved to Sacramento in August of 2017 to join the Sac High staff and taught as a special education teacher. Today she serves as Dean of Culture and Instruction for 10th-12th grade. Rebecca is passionate about supporting and valuing teachers so that teachers can be at their absolute best for scholars. When not at Sac High, Rebecca is most likely reading young-adult novels, spending time with friends, or obsessing over the newest episode of Rupaul’s Drag Race!
