Matt Rockwell moved to Centennial after five years of teaching in California.  He is currently the cooking instructor and teaches one period of math.

Rockwell was previously a chef for 10 years and helped open up three restaurants.

His wife got a job that moved them up to Oregon.  Rockwell said he, “Wanted to teach.  I have always loved teaching,” so he got a job as a math teacher then heard of the opening as a cooking teacher.

Besides cooking, he enjoys surfing and volleyball, but Rockwell mentioned, “I don’t surf in Oregon. The water’s way too cold.”
