Hello! My name is Katharine Matthews and I teach 6th grade Earth Science at Rockmart Middle School. I earned my bachelor degree in Early Childhood Education at the University of West Georgia in 2012. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this school year!
My teaching philosophy: It is my goal for each of my students to feel welcome and comfortable in my classroom so they can learn to their best ability. I incorporate every type of learning style to be able to reach each student when teaching. It is important to me to make students realize that science is all around us. With technology at our fingertips,I also try to teach my students to think outside the box with higher order thinking skills. As a 6th grade teacher, I know that the move from elementary to middle school is a big change and I feel it is my responsibility to help them mature and learn what is expected as they move forward into the real world.
