Greetings. I am Matt Pohlman and I teach 7-12 Business Education and Technology classes for MNW and Iowa Central Community College. My Junior High students take Project Lead the Way (PLTW) classes Design & Modeling along with Automation & Robotics. I am also a co-sponsor of our schools' First Tech Challenge (FTC) team #9973. I started teaching in Manson during the 2013/14 school year. Previously I taught at CAL Community School in Latimer, Iowa. I also coach Girls' Track at MNW.
I grew up in Algona, Iowa graduating from Algona High School in 1989. From there I received my AA degree from North Iowa Area Community College in May of 1991. I received my BA degree from the University of Northern Iowa in 1994.
I live outside Manson with my wife, Dawn and two children, Miranda & Grant. We enjoy several outdoor activities such as kayaking in the summer, and snowmobiling in the winter months. We also enjoy going to area car shows and cruising in our 1953 Chevy.
My courses for the 2016-17 school year are as follows:
