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!

  • Beginning of Grade (BOG) Testing Letters

    As your child begins third grade, you will see a concentrated focus in ensuring students can read at or above grade level and is making progress in reading proficiency, so they can read, comprehend, integrate, and apply complex texts needed for secondary education and career success. As part of the Read to Achieve law (G.S. §115C-83.1) passed by the General Assembly in 2012, your child will take the Beginning-of-Grade 3 (BOG3) Reading Test to establish a baseline measure of beginning third-grade reading skills. This test will be administered within the first 20 days of face to face instruction, October 26 - November 23, 2020
