While my plans post-graduation remain (very) fluid, I hope to continue my educational journey into graduate school. In the meantime I spend my time shoehorning music lyrics into essays and playing softball. Mattea Burke My name is Mattea Burke, and I'm from Missoula, Montana. I love playing tennis, hiking, swimming, and really anything outdoors. I came to Western for the block schedule and the highly recommended education program. Someday, I hope to teach math at a high school level, so I am majoring in math and secondary education. Come see me in the Learning Center if you have any math questions, or you just want some more support when working through a problem.
