My name is Kim Mathews and I am a 3rd grade teacher at West Plains Elementary. I am really excited about this new position and I can't wait for school to start! Here is a little information about myself. I grew up in Mtn. Grove, MO. After high school, I went to Central Methodist University in Fayette, MO. My first three years of teaching were spent at Slater Elementary. I taught 2nd grade for two years and 4th grade for one year. My husband Christian and I have a 1 1/2 year old daughter named Dawson. She is such a blessing to our family. Aside from teaching 3rd grade, I am also the Assistant Cheer Coach for West Plains. Teaching is my passion which is why I am so excited for this new journey.
