Ms. Matthiesen

Hello! Let's get this year started! I can't wait to meet you all and learn more about where you are from, what you like to do at home, and your favorite sport!  I played 5 varsity sports in high school. Maybe by the end of the year, you will know all the sports I played. I will have prizes for the first kids who know all of those sports. Be ready for clues during our whole class meetings. I also played three sports in college. Who will be the first to know what those sports are?

Thank you for being a part of my second year at NCNAA! I love my new school and I think you will too. I have been a classroom teacher for 20 years and have taught every grade from 1st grade through 5th grade. My favorite grade to teach is 4th! I enjoy watching 4th graders develop as problem solvers.

Food: Sushi
Movie: Anything that makes me cry :)
Book: Harry Potter
