Welcome to Coach Matthews' 8th grade English class. I am excited to be your teacher this year. A little bit about me. This is my 6th year in education and 5th year with Little Elm ISD. I am extremely proud to be a Lobo and love to teach and see students reach their fullest potential. Aside from teaching, I am the 7th-grade girl's coach for Volleyball, Basketball, and Track.
I attended the University of North Texas and graduated with a degree in Kinesiology and minored in Health Promotion. Growing up, I loved attending school and reading. My favorite subjects were, of course, Reading and PE. I had many teachers that made a huge impact on me and that's why I chose teaching as my career.
I have two beautiful daughters. Phebe is 9 and going into 4th grade this year, and Paige is 2, turning 3 in February. Both are completely different from each other so I get the best of both worlds. Phebe is sweet and caring, while Paige is.....spunky and a trouble-maker. I married my best friend, Fred, in 2010. He served in the Marine Corps and now owns a screen printing & embroidery company.
