Mrs. Alicia Matthews
Welcome to Second Grade
We are going to have an exciting year full of learning adventures!
I cannot wait to learn all about YOU, so I'll tell you a little bit about myself.
I am originally from NY where I earned my bachelor's degree in elementary education, and my mater's degree in literacy. I began my career in education as an early childhood teacher, and then became the director of the early childhood center where I taught. While in NY I taught kindergarten, and second grade. In 2012, I moved to NC where I've taught kindergarten, second grade, and fourth grade in Johnston county.
I have a wonderful husband named Jay, an awesome daughter named Ayla who attends JCC, and amazing daughter named Maiven who attends CTLA at JCC. We have two adorable chihuahuas named Rosie & Rico, and a curious cat named Sylvia.
When I'm not teaching I like to spend much of my time outside. I like to garden, swim, go for walks, and visit new places.
Now, that you know a little bit about me... it's my turn to learn all about YOU, and I can't wait!
The best form of contact for me is ClassDojo.

North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English.

The state window for our annual ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 is February 22 to April 23, 2021. Your child will be tested between February 22 and April 23.
