Mr. Matthew Craig
“Hi! I’m Matthew Craig. I’m serving my first year as Assistant Principal here at Bay Minette Elementary School in the 2017-18 school year. I’m excited to a part of the BMES family. I am really “coming home” in a sense as I started my journey in my education career at Bay Minette Intermediate School in 2004 as a student teacher. It’s great to be back among so many familiar faces.
This is my 8th year in the BCBE system. I have taught 1st grade and 4th-8th grades at various schools, emphasizing in math, since 2004. I took a hiatus and joined the military in March of 2011 and spent nearly 5 years out of the classroom. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL. I have a Master’s in Education Administration from Grand Canyon University and am currently working toward my Ed.S. in Administration of Elementary and Secondary Education through Auburn University. Tigers fans don’t get excited. I bleed red and white! Roll Tide!!!
I have a beautiful family. My wife, Arin, and I have been married for just over 4 years. I have a very smart and energetic son named Sawyer. In June 2018, we’ll be welcoming the newest addition to our family. We have 2 cats named Gracie and Josie.
Again, I’m glad to be a part of the BMES family and I look forward to serving as your Assistant Principal.”
