About Me

  • Hi, Matt Williams is my name, history is my game! I have been passionately interested in history since I was a young child. I grew up watching history documentaries, going to museums, and collecting antiques.

    After I graduated High School, I went to California State University, Chico (Chico State) for my Bachelor's Degree in History. During my time there, I was very active in the History Department, becoming Chapter President of the Phi Alpha Theta historical honors society as well as the Chico State History Club. In addition, I published two articles in the Chico Historian, the academic journal of the Chico State History Department. I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in History in May 2017.

    After I got my Bachelor's Degree, I entered the teaching credential program at Chico State, doing my student teaching at Pleasant Valley High School with my wonderful mentor, Beth Burton. I earned my credential in May 2018 and was hired on at Fairfield High School on July 11. I am extremely excited to begin my long teaching career as a Falcon!
