About Ms. Matters

     This is currently my twelfth year at Smoky Row Elementary. I absolutely love teaching third grade! I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Indiana University in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Reading.  I am also fortunate to work as a Lead Teacher in our building and help facilitate professional development for our staff.

     I have three adult children.  My oldest son is 23 and graduated from Butler University; my middle son is 21 and is working full time in his first job; my daughter is 20 and is a sophomore in college attending Ivy Tech!

     I love to read for fun and professionally, work in the yard and flower garden, and spend time with my family and friends! I have always known I wanted to be a teacher! I used to spend my summers at my grandparents’ house with my big chalkboard “teaching” younger neighborhood kids to read! It is truly a blessing to be able to fulfill my lifelong dream! I appreciate the opportunity to work with your child and be a part of his/her life!
