Pre-K & Kindergarten
Edmund was born and raised across the Delaware River in Pike County to a family of multi-generational Homestead students and teachers. He received his primary education at the Homestead School from 1993-1998, elementary education in the Delaware Valley School District, and then attended St. Andrew’s School in Middletown, Delaware. At St. Andrew’s he had the opportunity to learn from his first cousin, Monica Matouk, and her husband, John Austin, who now are the heads of school at Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts.
Edmund holds a Bachelor of the Arts from Haverford College where he majored in History with an additional focus in Global Politics and International Law. Edmund utilized his liberal arts education and his Montessori foundation to pursue professional interests in New York City as a photographer/videographer as well as participating in multiple businesses in their start-up phase as a Media Director. Edmund then began his own farm-based business in the State of Maine, successfully transforming a remote piece of forested land into a functional and profitable agriculture space.
Edmund returns to Homestead now to complete a lifelong goal of bettering his home community through accessible and dynamic education. He sustains this commitment to accessible and dynamic education through the summer months just down the road at Camp Shohola in Greeley, PA, and is currently training for a long-term commitment as Assistant Director. Edmund is also pursuing a Secondary Montessori Certification from the Cincinnati Montessori Secondary Teacher Education Program and will be executing the practicum phase of the program at the Homestead Collaborative College High School.
