Matthew Holley

My name is Matthew Holley, and I am so excited about beginning my second year with the LTISD Family serving as an Assistant Principal at Hudson Bend Middle School!

Prior to joining LTISD, I worked for three years in Del Valle ISD as an Assistant Principal for Dailey Middle School. Before embarking upon a career as an administrator, I was a classroom teacher at the high school level for 10 calendar years, teaching both Spanish and English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR). Before working in public education, I received a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies/Economics from Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX, where I was a shooting guard for the men’s basketball team. I also spent the fall semester of 2003 studying abroad at the University of Salamanca, the oldest university in Spain. My graduate studies include earning a Master of Arts in International Studies from Texas State University in 2009, which culminated in a 3-month internship in Cordoba, Argentina, where I completed my master’s thesis and worked as a research assistant for a local NGO. In 2018, I completed all coursework at Lamar University in Educational Leadership in order to receive my EC-12 Principal Certification.

I am a native of Waco, Texas, but I have also lived in Spain, Chile, and Argentina. In my spare time, I love to be around my wonderful family as much as possible, and I am so proud to announce that I have become a father for the first time this past May of a brand-new baby girl! I am also an avid reader, exercise fanatic, and a huge fan of combat sports, especially MMA.
