Matthew Mann is a major voice in the Baltimore community about the skilled trades and alternative forms of education available to students other than pursuing a traditional four-year college degree.

For fifteen years, Matthew Mann taught auto mechanics and transportation courses at the area Career and Technology Center. However, simply teaching vocational courses wasn’t enough for Matthew. He strove to address the administrative shortcomings in vocational education he saw on a local level. At the same time, mindful of the shifting state of education, Matthew wondered if he could expand his impact on a larger scale. Inspired by this notion, Matthew took the leap and shifted his career focus to education administration to encourage more students to pursue the path of vocational education.

Now with over two decades of experience in various education administration roles, Matthew Mann has continuously addressed and met the evolving workforce needs of the country. His approach to vocational education is built on two pillars: his desire to help people grow and succeed in their careers, and his understanding of the requirements of a successful 21st-century workforce.

Over the course of his career, Matthew Mann has been acknowledged for his contributions to the field of academics by numerous local and state organizations, such as the area Career and Technology Center and the Pennsylvania Association of Career and Technical Education Special Populations, which serves special needs students in technical education. Not only that, but Matthew was also recognized by the Pennsylvania Governor’s office for creating partnerships with business and industry in terms of growing vocational education. Matthew has also been invited to speak at both of his alma maters, Temple University and Penn State University, about initiatives and programs for vocational education.

Matthew Mann is very involved in his community, as he combines his passion for fitness and giving back to the community by working with the Special Olympics, local 5k runs, golfing tournaments, and more. As a former professional weightlifter, Matthew has participated in various strength competitions in York, Pennsylvania. Matt views physical activity as more than just a way to keep fit — it’s a way to grow as a professional because of its ability to relieve stress and teach discipline. Read Less
