Mr. Ziviski

My name is Matthew Ziviski, and I am PROUD to be a Murphy Middle School Maverick! Plano ISD has been my home since 2016 when I took a middle school position at Special Programs and had the honor of working with students in that program until 2019. Then, Mathews Elementary gave me the opportunity to teach as a third-grade teacher with brilliant, young students that were destined for great things. After two years there, I was given another opportunity to explore Coaching as an Assistant Wrestling Coach for Plano West Senior High School, and as a Special Education Teacher at Jasper High School, which was a wonderful experience. Now, I am a Maverick! I have the opportunity to work as a Special Education Achieve teacher creating opportunities for students to find their path through education. I am honored to be here and to work with such an amazing staff.
