A Must See For All Eight Grade Teachers

Mr. Short’s Georgia Studies

Hello, my name is Matthew Short.  I am an 8th Grade Social Studies (Georgia Studies) teacher at Griffin Middle School.  I also currently serve as the Social Studies Coordinator for Griffin.  I graduated from Western Carolina University in 2001 with a Bachelor's Degree in Social Science Education with a Minor in Political Science.  After teaching in North Carolina for one year I moved to Cobb County and began teaching at Griffin Middle School.  I was selected the Griffin Middle School Teacher of the Year for the 2005-2006 school year.  If you ever need to contact me, my email address and school phone number are listed below.  Hopefully parents and students alike will find this blog a useful resource during this school year
