Matthew Prochnow, School Coach
Over the last decade, Matt has served numerous roles at Big Picture Philadelphia. As a founding advisor at el Centro de Estudiantes, Matt proudly graduated 24 students from his advisory (including Jose, at left). Now working chiefly as the School Coach at Vaux Big Picture High School, Matt is experienced in the school start-up process. He enjoys creating systems, finding and crunching numbers to put into color-coded spreadsheets, the tangled process of hiring staff for progressive schools, helping adults be their best selves with and for kids, and, most of all, spending time with young people. Matt loves distance running, reading, and cooking. Matt is a new father, and enjoys every minute of his time with his family.
