Calamvale Community College
Matthew Butterworth’s history classes are an engaging and exciting place to be.
An active member of the Queensland History Teacher’s Association, The Calamvale Community College teacher is committed to transforming his professional knowledge into engaging class material.
With a strong appreciation of the many ways in which students learn, he utilises many different teaching approaches to get the best out of his students, including self-directed, kinaesthetic, and digital learning techniques.
This commitment to using a wide range of teaching techniques to suit individual students is what led to Matthew being nominated for the 2017 QCT Excellence in Teaching Award by his head of department.
Matthew has also become a leader within his faculty, creating and implementing new peer-feedback processes across the school.
A highly respected member of the school community, Matthew has an impact that reaches far beyond the classroom, interacting with students as a coach, a student council coordinator, and a house leader.
Congratulations Matthew on your nomination.
