My name is Anthony Mattia and I am from Edmonton, Alberta. I graduated from the University of Alberta in 2015 with a Bachelor of Secondary Education majoring in Mathematics, and minoring in Chemistry. I moved to Guangzhou to work at CIS right after university and have Been my ever since! This my fourth year at CIS and it has been amazing to see this school grow into what it is today. I have always known that I wanted to be a teacher. Seeing the students persevere and grasp challenging concepts is the highlight Of each workday I have at CIS. I love laughing with the students and creating a classroom culture where students are able to be themselves and feel active interacting with all of their peers. By creating engaging and authentic learning tasks my goal is to have every student leave my class feeling happy and confident.
