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 goal of Read to Achieve legislation, which became law in July 2012, is to ensure that every student reads at or above grade level by the end of third grade. This law requires students who are not proficient on third grade reading standards after the student attempts all of the possibilities for promotion, to be placed in one of three situations for the following school year...
