Welcome back to school, 6th grade! I hope that everyone had a restful summer and that you are now ready to begin your new journey as a middle schooler!

I am Mr. Matthew Crater, and I am thrilled to begin my fifth year as the 6th-grade Assistant Principal at Haverford Middle School. My teaching career is rooted in Annapolis, Maryland where I spent three years teaching 5th grade. After my departure from Maryland, I arrived at Haverford, and for two years I called my 6th-grade science classroom my home.

You are now a FORD,  and together, as the class of 2028, I challenge you to make your middle school years a time of academic and social growth. I am very fortunate to be a part of an incredible community of administrators, teachers, staff, and parents that are determined to make this a reality for you. Haverford Middle School is an exceptional place to learn and explore new opportunities. The teachers and support staff are passionate and strive to make the learning experience at the middle school exciting and engaging each day.

My wife, Meghan, daughter, Rosie, and I are residents of Haverford Township. We enjoy traveling and spending time at Long Beach Island, NJ. 

I am committed to Haverford and look forward to serving this community as the 6th-grade Assistant Principal.
