Miss Mattes

Hi there!

My name is Miss Mattes and I am so excited to be at GJHS for my first year teaching! I graduated from Midwestern State University and then spent 3 and a half years working in Parks and Recreation. Ever since I was in middle school, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. Throughout my education I fell in love with science and knew that was the subject I wanted to teach. In my free time, I like to paint, swim, and hang out with my pets. I have a mini Dachshund named Stella, a kitten named Nora, and 2 goldfish named Pebbles and Jenkins. I am super excited for this school year and can't wait to meet everyone!

Go Leopards!

I am so excited to dive into this school year and explore the science world! :)
