Matthew Levy

Matthew Levy grew up in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn and attended Oberlin College, where he majored in history. He holds a master’s degree from Bank Street College of Education. Matthew’s first full-time teaching position was at PS 35 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, where he taught first grade for eight years. Since coming to PS8 in 2004, Matthew says, “I’ve seen the school come together as a community, to really coalesce as a learning environment. The kids are excited to learn, and I’m excited to be here.” He encourages students “to take risks and put themselves out there as authors — which is hard but important to learn how to do.”

Outside of school, Matthew enjoys hiking and reading (Eugene O’Neill in particular!)
