Ms. Mattes graduated from Towson University with a B.S. in Elementary Education. Ms. Mattes has been teaching in Christian schools for 16 years with much of her experience being with fourth and fifth graders and middle schoolers.
Ms. Mattes strongly believes in teaching students the value of TEAM where God is our captain and we are the players who work together to create respect and love for others. Ms. Mattes enjoys using puppets, projects, and funny stories about her bird, Piper, to make learning fun and meaningful for her students. Laughter can always been heard in the fifth grade classroom! When Ms. Mattes is not teaching, she enjoys playing the piano and clarinet, reading a good book, and chasing after her 14 birds, 1 bunny, and 2 gerbils.
