Welcome to Woodland Middle School. My name is Mattie Jorgensen, and this is my second year teaching at Woodland. After teaching 2nd grade for 12 years, I knew I was ready for a new challenge and change in my teaching career. I was pleasantly pleased to be offered a job at Woodland to teach 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. I am passionate about working with our youth to inspire and support them in becoming lifelong learners.
Outside of school, I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my family and friends. We live in a beautiful area that has so much to offer. One of my favorite activities is hiking. I love the challenge of making it to the top of a mountain and experiencing the serenity of being out in nature.
One of My future goals is to travel and volunteer around the world. I have a passion for community building and culture. My heart has always been pulled to help others and experience different cultural systems. There is a certain sense of fulfillment that comes from giving all that I have to offer, and at the same time, gaining insight and knowledge from the people I meet along the way.
