Mr. Kooienga

Greetings parents and students, my name is Matt Kooienga, and I am excited to start my fourth year at North Elementary School as a 5th grade teacher.  I am entering my 14th year teaching and am excited to be working with your child this year. My goal for each year is to see your child grow academically, socially, and emotionally.  

When I am not at school, I enjoy hanging out with my family, watching/playing sports, fishing and reading a good book.


I am looking forward to partnering with you to further your child's education.
