Mrs. Alicia Matthews-ELAR 6th and 7th Grade
I am looking forward to an exciting new year in a brand new building! I am beginning my 12 year in LE and my 6th year teaching ELAR. My husband and I have been married for 21 years and we have 4 beautiful children, Sherise (My bonus daughter is 29), Devin (18), Avery (15), and Kamryn (14). We have lived in Little Elm for 21 years and love watching our town grow. When I am not teaching, I love working out, cooking, gardening, reading, and watching movies with my family.
My teaching style is building relationships before anything else! I believe in giving all children a voice by support, love, and encouragement. I believe each child has a gift and I try to help them discover that through reading, writing, creating, and sharing.
This year will be such an amazing year for your child and I am blessed to be a part of it. Please feel free to contact me by email anytime you have questions or concerns.
