My name is Matthew Orr. I have been a teacher at Chimacum Elementary School for five years. For each year I have worked here I would like to share with you one idea or core value. One: I love to help people. There is no better reward than seeing someone else fly, knowing that you provided some portion of that lift. Two: I believe in the power of public schools. They are the true measure of the strength and cohesiveness of a community. Three: I believe we all can be and should be, life-long learners. I am living proof that you can always learn something new. Four: I believe that school might not always be fun, but it is always worthwhile. Five: I look forward to working for your children and working with them as they become masters of their own destinies.
