My name is Matt Baltes and I teach 5th grade Science. This is my seventh year teaching at Piqua and my 14th year teaching overall. I am married to my wife, Melissa, and we have a three year old son, Jonathan. My family is very important to me. We enjoy going to the zoo, taking trips to the aquarium, going on walks, and watching movies. I also enjoy reading with my son, making him laugh, and watching him learn and have fun. My favorite hobby would be watching sports. The sports I like the most would be football, college basketball, and golf. My favorite teams are the Ohio State Buckeyes, Cincinnati Bengals, and the Cincinnati Reds.
