Mrs. Matthews

I will be entering my 23rd year of education in the 2022-2023 school year.  I started my career with Harnett County in July 2000. Since beginning my teaching career, I have taught second, third, fourth, and fifth grades. I look forward to the upcoming school year and building relationships with my students and their family.

I am originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  I arrived in North Carolina by way of the military.  I met my husband while serving in the Air Force. We have two daughters, a son, and seven grandsons.  

I love being an educator and helping students to meet their full potential. I have high expectations and establish principles that demand excellence and build a solid foundation for lifelong learning. An important part of my professional mission is to be a positive role model for my students and coworkers.

I coach, I don't enable.  I create independence, one individual at a time.
