Our Keynote Speakers

Dr. Matthew Strittmatter

My name is Dr. Matthew Strittmatter, and I am the proud principal of Elizabeth Davis Middle School in Chesterfield County. It has been an absolute pleasure serving the Chester community over the past four years. I look forward to what the future holds for our school building, our division, and the entire state of Virginia. At Elizabeth Davis Middle School, our vision focuses on relationships (a family first atmosphere), a high level of rigor (keep expectations high), and a relevant, cross-curricular approach. We believe in the importance of connections, and we instill in our staff and students the belief that they can and will be successful. When we are unified, opportunities are endless.
