Mr. Matt Riggins

Welcome to my website! This is my first year at Mount Pleasant, and I'm excited to get to know everyone. I'm originally from Monroe, NC and graduated from Parkwood High in 2003. I was a North Carolina Teaching Fellow at UNCC (Go Niners!) and graduated in 2007 with my BA in History with concentrations in Secondary Education and Comprehensive Social Studies. My first 11 years teaching were back at Parkwood and then I spent 2 at Central Cabarrus and now am incredibly fortunate to be a part of the Tiger family.

I'll be teaching AP US History this year as well as Civics and Economics. I know that remote learning is pretty new to all of us, and I hope you're as excited about the challenge as I am. I'll also be coaching football (offensive line) and track and field (shotput and discus) and am looking forward to getting back out on the fields as soon as we safely can.

I live in Midland with my girlfriend, Lauren and my dog, Xero. When I'm not teaching and coaching I enjoy sports, trivia, cooking, and working on projects around my house.
