Matt Burrows could score title of Canada’s favourite teacher


Matt’s a graduate of JP and he’s very modest. He was also the superstar that won our only provincial basketball final so he was the guy with the final shot. He’s all about school spirit but he’s also about community building. Games of the week, we had one this year which was the quarter final for senior men’s volleyball that I played in. And it was awesome. It just changes the whole, like, way to play because you know people are there supporting you instead of just, like, your parents. It’s like, the students are there, watching. I think a sense of community brings a sense of belonging and when you belong to something, you’re more willing to be invested in something to make it to school and to put in a little more effort and to feel you’re a part of something. Some people don’t have that elsewhere. So if we can be that for someone then that’s awesome.
