Hello Families! My name is Kaley Matous and I will be new to the Stafford community this year.
This will be my fifth year teaching in the elementary school setting. I have taught first, second, and third grade. I was born and raised in North Dakota and Colorado in an Air Force family. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with an Endorsement in English as a Second Language in 2017 at the University of Northern Colorado. During my first two years teaching, I received my Master's of Education in Early Childhood from Stephen F. Austin State University.
I am passionate about reading and love to make the stories we read in class come to life! My absolute favorite story is The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Fank Baum. Our classroom has hints of the story throughout and we will preschool versions of the story throughout the school year. I also love playing the piano, playing volleyball, spending time with my family, and watching my favorite movies.
I can't wait to learn more about our class families and all of our favorite things throughout the school year!
