Tell us a little bit about you. Things you like outside of school, etc.…

My name is Britni Matthews, and I am a wife, mother of 3 kids ages 4, 5, and 7. I have been teaching Prek for 14 years, and I absolutely love it. Outside of work, I love to cook and cater. I am currently in grad school at Lamar University for my Masters and Principal certification. My dream is to be a Principal at an Early Childhood Center or own my own daycare. Children and food are 2 of my favorite things in life, outside of family.


Give us an idea of your education passion, can you tell us something of why you chose education…

I love working with children. Teaching doesn’t feel like work for me. It’s the most rewarding thing to see the light bulb go off in my student’s head when I am teaching. My passion is Early Childhood Education. PreK is such a significant grade. It’s the child’s introduction to school. PreK determines their attitude about school. I love my job!
