Matthew Johnston, World Languages Teacher

Mateo Johnston lives in Hyde Park and is from Charlestown. He graduated from Fenway High School in 2000, and went to college at George Washington University in D.C. He majored in Spanish Language & Literature and minored in History focusing on Latin America. He has lived in D.C., Spain, Puerto Rico and Roxbury. He is a founding member of the design team for Boston Green Academy. His current licenses include: Spanish as a Foreign Language; and Moderate Disabilities and Sheltered English Immersion certifications. He is currently a Boston Teachers Union building representative, in his sixth year (over two non-consecutive terms). Since 2014, he has worked with colleagues to lead International Service Learning Adventures (ISLA) on trips to the Dominican Republic, Spain, Guatemala and Puerto Rico. This project – for students who have studied Spanish for at least one year – is an experience that transforms hearts, minds and communities. As much as possible, he enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, and two dogs. Get in touch here
