Mrs. Matthews

I am currently enjoying the students, faculty, and supportive staff at Woodland Middle School.  I am married to my loving husband Erik, and we have a combined 6 kids. Our family enjoys all of the outdoor adventures Idaho has to offer.  I spent my college career at the University of San Francisco working toward a  Degree in Exercise and Sports Science with a minor in Business Administration, while playing NCAA Division 1 girls basketball.  I continued to study and receive my MA at Northern Arizona University in Educational Leadership. I have been teaching Kindergarten to Seniors in High School for 15 years.  My experience as a high school weight training teacher and Varsity girls basketball coach was intense and full of challenging and rewarding experiences.  I am happy here at Woodland Middle School where teachers and staff have made a commitment to helping kids excel.
