Hello Red Raiders! My name is Matthew Karaffa.  I will become your new Superintendent of Schools on July 1, 2021.  I have been an educator for the past 15 years, including 10 as a school administrator, at all levels (elementary, junior high and high school). I hold a BA in education with focus on social studies and Spanish, an MA in school administration and an Ed.S. in central office leadership.  Prior to becoming an educator, I worked for 10 years as a rough carpenter in Macomb and Oakland counties.

I am married to my beautiful wife Sarah, who is also a teacher.  I have two daughters Chloe, 13 and Lilyana, 11. In my free time I enjoy attending Tiger games at Comerica Park, taking bike rides with my kids and reading. 

I am excited to become a part of the Marlette community and I cannot wait to officially become a Red Raider on July 1! I look forward to meeting everyone soon and to begin building relationships with students, staff and families. See you all very soon!
