Matt Veltema

My name is Matt and I teach 7th & 8th Grade Bible and Math. I love the people I work with. We have an incredible staff at Legacy that makes coming to work incredibly joyful. The students I get to work with are awesome too. Teaching middle school is a lot of fun for me as I get to relate with these kids on a very real level. The Legacy community is an awesome and supportive community that makes my job a lot easier!

When I am not in the classroom I enjoy playing games with my family, camping with my family, golfing and coaching basketball.

If I could travel anywhere in the world I would love to visit Greece!

My favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 3:5-6 – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

My Deep Hope is that we are willing to listen to God’s word, wrestle with it, and put it into action.
