Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Matthew Brankman


I am so excited to be the new principal of Bridport Central School!  Over the last several years I have worked in a variety of schools.  I started my career in Grayling, Alaska as a mathematics and science teacher.  After a few years teaching, I was asked to be a teaching principal in the same school.  In 2011 my family and I moved from Alaska to Bradford, Vermont where I became the principal of Bradford Elementary.  During the six years that I worked with the community of Bradford we partnered to bring Project Based Learning to all students in our K-6 school!

Engaging students in meaningful learning is something I am passionate about and I hope to learn more about our community and how we can work together to make school meaningful for us all!
