Matt Linden
History Teacher

Mr. Linden is so excited to be joining the Kehillah community for the 2019-2020 school year! After growing up in Massachusetts, he studied History and Linguistics at Cornell University, and he has a particular interest in the process of globalization in the 17th and 18th centuries, and the places and times where vastly different peoples encounter each other for the first time.

After Cornell, Mr. Linden spent two years in the Progressive Education Lab, a fellowship designed to train teachers in progressive pedagogy and practice. During this time, he taught at the Miquon School in Philadelphia, PA, The Cambridge School of Weston in Weston, MA, The Putney School in Putney, VT, and—for the past year—The Crefeld School in Philadelphia. Mr. Linden is so honored to be a part of Kehillah’s community, and he is looking forward to not worrying about snowstorms in the winter for the first time he can remember.
