Hey there! My name is Ms. Mathews and I'm excited to be your child's 6th grade teacher for the school year!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from the University of Arizona (Go Cats!) in 2013 with a B.A. in Education. I taught two years of 6th grade in my hometown of Bullhead City, Arizona before accepting a teaching opportunity abroad in Thailand where I taught English as a Second Language. I started teaching 6th grade at Tarwater in 2016 and have been loving every moment as a Toro!
My Educational Philosophy
For me, being a teacher means being an advocate for your child. I strive to create a safe and fun learning environment that promotes student growth not only academically, but socially as well. I set very high expectations for all my students and know that when both teacher and student come into each school day with a positive attitude and a readiness to learn, these expectations can and will be met. I love teaching 6th grade and watching my students transform and progress as they prepare to enter junior high school.
