I am so excited a new year is starting.
My family and I moved to Wylie when my husband retired from the U.S. Air Force 5 years ago. I am a UTSA Roadrunner. We have 3 children. Our firstborn, Lex attended OU and is now serving in the Navy. Our second child, Grace is headed to the University of Arkansas this year to pursue a nursing career. Our third child, Faith is a senior here at the best high school, Wylie East. So, amont others we have the following loyalties in the Mathis house: #forgedbythesea #woopigsooie #rfl.
I have spoken Spanish all of my life and want to share my beautiful language and rich culture with all of my students. My goal is to immerse students in the language so that they can use it in the classroom and in the community. In room 817 I hope your child will find a place they feel safe enough and brave enough to communicate in a new language. I know exactly how it feels to not know the language everyone is using.
My motto is "Kind words are like honey. They are sweet to the spirit and healthy for the body."
I co-sponsor the LEO club with Mrs. McCain. We are the high school version of the Lions club. We invite students from all grade levels to join our service organization.
I hope we all have a great school year!
