Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Matz


This will be my 11th year teaching and my third year teaching at OES.  I have a B.S. in Elementary Education and a M.Ed. in Elementary and Middle School Mathematics Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  I received my Gifted and Talented certification from the University of South Carolina-Aiken.  It is my belief that each child is able to achieve success with goal setting, reasonably high expectations, parental communication, a strong, respectful classroom community, and a positive nurturing environment that fosters the skills and independence in preparation for third grade and beyond.  It is my desire to teach, nurture, encourage, and empower students to reach their unlimited potential.
