1st Grade Teacher
Hello! My name is Mrs. Maria Mathews. I received my Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education with honors from Cleveland State Community College in 2007. I received my Bachelor Degree in Kindergarten-Sixth Human Growth and Learning with honors from Tusculum College in 2010. Then, I received my Master’s in Educational Psychology from Capella University in 2017. I have a certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis. I just finished getting my supervision hours to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. I am currently waiting for the state to approve my application so I can take my test.
I taught multi-age for three years at Madisonville Primary School and one year in straight first grade. I was the librarian for one year at Vonore Elementary School. I have taught first grade for the past six years at Vonore Elementary and half a year teaching a first-second split.
I am super excited to be finished with my hours and I cannot wait to implement what I have learned in Applied Behavior Analysis. I am always excited to start the new year with new students. I cannot wait to see what we all learn this year!
