Matthew Parris returns to his old high school stomping grounds as our second of our two new Spanish teachers this school year. Matt is happy to be back and proud as always to be a Brave! During his days as a Socastee student, Matt dreamed of being like his favorite Spanish teachers, who often allowed him to teach lessons and help tutor his peers. After high school, Matt went to Coastal Carolina University where he majored in Spanish and Journalism. He followed his other dream—being a news reporter—into a decade of work in local TV and radio broadcasting both in front of and behind the camera. He covered many major events during his news career, including the Emanuel 9 shooting, lowering of the confederate flag at the State House, and several major Hurricanes including Matthew, Florence, and Dorian. Matt is proud to return once again to the halls of his alma mater and to live out his initial dream: sharing the gift of Spanish language to a new generation of Braves. When he’s not teaching and learning, you can find Matt playing music around the beach with his band or playing disc golf with friends at the park.
