Welcome to LIFE SCILLS! Our class is one dedicated to teaching necessary life skills in order to foster independence and self-sufficiency. We are committed to providing an educationally enriching environment for our students, but we are just as dedicated to providing a caring and fun environment for them as well! We will be working hard all year to improve the academic skills of our students, while at the same time teaching independence and self-advocacy. My team and I are so excited to be a part of this wonderful environment and work with such fantastic students, it is going to be a fantastic year!
My name is Matthew Aud and I am very excited to be a part of Gilbert Junior High this year! I am originally from the beautiful city of Colorado Springs in Colorado, but moved to sunny Arizona about 7 years ago with my fantastic wife and daughter. We absolutely love animals and have a house full of dogs (4 to be exact) and birds (2 green cheek conures), they are all unbelievably spoiled! Arizona is quite a bit different than Colorado, I don't know if I was quite prepared for how hot it is here! I earned my Bachelor's Degree through Grand Canyon University last year and am currently working toward an Ed.S. degree in school psychology through the University of Arizona. I am looking forward to an amazing year!
