Mr. Matthew Straub

A native New Yorker, Mr. Straub is entering his 10th year of teaching visual art here at Speight Middle School, and 20th year teaching overall. His courses focus on creativity, emphasizing the powers of ingenuity and outside-the-box thinking.

Creativity is the driving force of humanity, and it is my hope to impart the necessity of imagination to the next generation of students. Make sure to explore the student galleries on!
