Mrs. Kathy Matthews
My name is Kathy Matthews, and I have been teaching for 13 years. I received my Master's degree from the University of Montevallo in Elementary Education in K-6. I also have a Bachelor's degree from UAB in Finance. I began working right out of college in the business world. However, after a few short years working in accounting and financial management, I knew that I must return to school and follow my true calling which was to become a teacher.
After obtaining my Master's degree, I began my career at Vincent Elementary School in Shelby County where I taught technology for three years to K - 5th graders and taught one year of kindergarten. I loved working with a large variety of age groups and getting to know all the students in each grade, but I found my love of teaching in kindergarten. I transferred to Meadow View in 2009 to be closer to home, and I have continued to teach kindergarten ever since!!
My husband and I live in Alabaster. We have two children, Kole and Ella, who also attend Alabaster schools. They both enjoy playing sports, and we are often at the ball park during fall and spring enjoying the Alabama weather. We also have two dogs, Baxter and Oakley, who love going on walks and visiting the park.
I love working at MVES and know that I am in the right place in my life. Working with the children in this community and watching them grow, learn, and mature throughout each year is an amazing experience and inspires me daily to do the best job I can!!!
