Matt Johnson recently moved to San Diego from Orange County after getting married to his wife, Kaitlin, in 2019. He loves to surf, run, travel, and spend time with his friends and family.
One of Matt’s biggest passions is working with youth to help them reach their full potential. In 2013, he founded a non-profit called Common Ground, which works with middle school and high school kids in a low-income community in Huntington Beach. He decided to take the next steps in his desire to become a special education teacher by completing his Masters and teaching credential at Liberty University in the Spring of 2020. Matt loves working as an RTI specialist at Elevate because it enables him to work closely with students and see the joy on their faces as they grasp new concepts for the first time.
