Salaam! My name is Mattie Reese and I am the new Humanities teacher for grades four through eight. It is my pleasure to work with your learners this school year! I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice with a minor in Gender Studies. I also have a TEFL certification from Oxford Seminars and I have taught online for students in China; in-person at an Italian summer camp, and at a Vocational College in Houston, Texas. In our classroom we learn about the world around us through reading, history and writing. Together we emphasize diversity and acceptance of each other through academics and social-emotional learning inside and outside of the classroom. I looked forward to a full and productive year getting to know our students, and mirroring positive engagement with the world around us!
