Shawnee Trail Elementary School


     Mr. Matisoff is excited to begin his administrative journey as assistant principal of Shawnee Trail. He attended the University of Kansas to study broadcast journalism, and after working at several television stations across the country, decided to pursue his first passion, teaching.  He received his education degree from the University of Texas at Dallas and has a master's in Education Administration from Lamar University in Beaumont.

       Before working in Frisco, Mr. Matisoff was a classroom teacher and member of the campus leadership team for 7 years in Plano ISD.  In PISD he taught elementary and secondary students with an emphasis on gifted studies.  Mr. Matisoff believes there is nothing quite like the energy and buzz of an elementary school where each student is like a sponge waiting to soak up more and more wisdom and knowledge.

       When not at school, he enjoys traveling, being outdoors, and spending time with his wife, Jessica, and daughter, Laila.  

"I am ready for a fun filled year at Shawnee Trail where we can learn and grow together!"
