MEET THE TEAM
Matthew Hagarty, Site Administrator
Matthew currently teaches K-7th supplemental English and Reading at two schools in San Francisco’s Mission District. While in high school, Matthew first discovered his passion for writing as well as leadership and community service. While attending California State University, Chico, Matthew worked as both a writing tutor at the Student Learning Center and a coordinator for Community Action Volunteers in Education (C.A.V.E.), where he assisted the Boys & Girls Club of the North Valley to recruit university students to volunteer at local club sites.
After graduating college, Matthew began to pursue his other passion in life, music. When he is not in the classroom teaching, Matthew can be seen playing some of the Bay Area’s most prominent music venues and summer festivals. He is STOKED to be able to share both his passion for writing and music with everyone this summer at Adventures in Writing Camp!
Marjorie Boggs Vazquez, Writing Ranger
Marjorie is super excited to be working with Adventures in Writing Camp for the second year! She has been in education for 10 years, and a teacher for 7 of those years. She fell so in love with the AIW Camp curriculum that she used some of the core beliefs when teaching her 3rd graders writing in Oakland! When she’s not teaching, she spends her time cuddling her kitties, doing yoga, and sitting by Lake Merritt with friends. She is really looking forward to meeting her newest crew of campers and families this spring!
Rebecca Pies, Writing Ranger (Middle School)
Rebecca Pies has taught kindergarten for two years in the East Bay. She earned her teaching degree at San Jose State University, and her undergrad degree from The University of Hawaii at Manoa. Her passions include reading at the beach, teaching (of course), hiking with friends, and walking her dogs. She is excited for another year with Adventures in Writing Camp!
