Hello, my name is Matt Provost. I am thrilled to be the new principal at Crothers Elementary. As an educator and lead learner, my passion is providing a caring and supportive environment where all students can learn and grow.
Over the past 14 years, my journey as an educator has taken me to schools in Birmingham, Lake Orion, and Clawson. While in the classroom, I taught in 3rd through 8th grade and several split/multi-age classes. For the past three years, I have been Principal of Marshall Upper Elementary in Wayne-Westland Schools
I earned my Bachelors of Art in History at Michigan State University in 2003. Then, I obtained my Elementary Teacher Certification in 2008 and a Masters of Arts in Teaching degree in 2012 at Wayne State University. I continued my graduate-level coursework at Eastern Michigan University and earned my Administrator certification in 2016 at Eastern Michigan University.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing music and being a guitar geek. My wife is also a teacher, and we have three children.
