I have a BS degree in Child Development from the University of Pittsburgh and taught preschool for 9 years. I received my teaching license at Salem College in 2000 and began teaching the same year. In November 2008, I earned an Early Childhood Generalist Certificate from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.This will be my 15th year at Union Cross but my first year teaching kindergarten, as I have taught 1st grade for the past 14 years. I am so excited to have this opportunity!
Mrs. Mathis/Teacher Assistant
Mrs. Mathis graduated from Guilford Technical Community College and was a medical transcriptionist for 17 years before becoming a preschool teacher. This will be her 10th year as my assistant and she too looks forward to working with kindergartners!
