Meet the Principal

N52A0601 (1)52My name is Mrs. Elise Matson, and I am excited to be your principal this year! I am looking forward to meeting each of you. It is a blessing to have an opportunity to join the SJB community.

I am originally from Peoria, IL, but moved to Belgium when I was 15. I graduated from high school from St. John’s International School and attended Concordia University Chicago for my undergraduate degree in History. From there, I moved on to DePaul University for my Masters in English, and Dominican University for my second Masters in Educational Administration.

Before coming to St. John Brebeuf, I spent eight years at Trinity High School. I taught several subjects and worked as the Director of Continuous School Enhancement. I also worked as a Kindergarten aide and taught 5th-8th grade at St. James School in Chicago. When I am not in school, I am spending time with my husband and extended family, participating in sport's leagues, and training for short distance triathlons or 5k and 10k races.
