Hello! My name is Matthew Hendrickson and I have been teaching at Champlin Park High School since 2016. After I graduated high school, I joined the United States Marine Corps for nine years as a communication technician. My time in the military allowed me to reflect on what is important to me and ultimately pushed me to become a teacher. I received my undergraduate degree in Earth/Space Science from the University of St. Thomas, where I majored in geology and education. My experience in the educational world has shown me that science is best learned through curiosity, critical thinking, and application of concepts. I hope to extend your curiosity in my class and enhance your experience here at Champlin Park High School. Outside of teaching, you will find me coaching/playing baseball, spending time with my family, biking, and spending time outdoors as much as possible.
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
