Hello all, my name is Mr. Trevor Matheny. This year, 2017/2018, is my first year working at South Ridge School. I'll be teaching Grade 12 Economics and Grade 9 Government. I also plan to coach and help out with various athletic teams and extracurricular programs throughout the school year.

I grew up in Park Rapids, MN, where I played football, basketball, and track for the Park Rapids Panthers.  After graduating high school, I attended the University of MN Duluth, where I studied Secondary Education Social Studies and German Studies. I also played for the Duluth Fighting Penguins Rugby Football Club, and was a member of the UMD German Culture Club.

With my German Studies major, I have had the amazing opportunity to travel to Europe three times. My first trip was to Germany with my high school German class, second was a Study Abroad program with my UMD German Studies classes, and finally to Ireland for part of my UMD Student-Teaching, with trips to Germany and Sweden after finishing the school year in Ireland.


Outside of school, my main hobby is stage rally racing. I've been involved in rally racing since 2004, and currently serve as the Chief of Tech Inspection for the Ojibwe Forests Rally, Headwaters Rally, and Nemadji Trail Rally. I also volunteer at several other rally races around the USA, and plan on buying a rally car and racing someday in the future.

I'm looking forward to this school year, and to working with the students and staff at South Ridge School! Please feel free to contact me at any time during the school year with any questions you may have.
