Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Matt Kurkamp
Welcome to sixth grade science at Traughber Junior High School!
I joined the Traughber staff in 2005, after graduating from the University of St. Francis, Joliet, Ill., with a degree in elementary education and endorsements in science and social studies. I’ve taught sixth grade science for the past fourteen years, following two years of teaching social studies. I have lead or taken part in numerous district committees, and I have served as Traughber’s wrestling coach since 2005 and cross country coach since 2015. I received my master’s degree from Governors State University, Chicago, in 2009 with a focus in education administration. I look forward to many more years of educational excellence!
