By Rolf A. Sivertsen, Principal, Midland H.S.
This year four new teachers will start the year at Midland High School. This is probably the most geographically diverse staff that Midland High School has experienced in six years.
Mr. Matt Butcher: Mr. Butcher was raised in Illinois and has taught in Washington State and Alaska. Mr. Butcher's most recent assignment was in Nome, Alaska. In fact, while working in Nome, Mr. Butcher was living only 100 miles from the former Soviet Union! While living in Alaska Mr. Butcher was interested in the Iditarod dog sled race and had many Inuit students. This year Mr. Butcher will be teaching English I, English 4CP, and English 4. Mr. Butcher is married with two daughters.
