  • “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.”
