Matthew Ripley » Bio


My name is Matt Ripley and I teach 6th grade math here at CDMS. I am a 2003 graduate of Chuckey-Doak High School where I played football and soccer. I graduated from Tusculum College in 2009 with my bachelors degree in Mass Media. I worked for WGRV, WJHL, had my own television show and was an extra in different movies in Atlanta, GA. I received my Masters degree in Teaching in 2014 and began my teaching career. I've been an assistant coach with CDHS football for 12 years, middle school baseball head coach for 5 years and this year joined CDMS football as an assistant. My wife is Mrs. Ripley who teaching 6th grade E/LA here and we have a daughter in 7th grade. I have been a level 5 teacher the past 2 years and continue to learn and grow in my craft. I am the technology leader here at CDMS and enjoy expanding my abilities and responsibilities here. I look forward to an exciting 2018-2019 school year!
