My name is Morgan Matthews.
I am thrilled to be joining the Westgate Community this year.
I have been teaching for nearly nine years. I began my career in adult education supporting women and couples as a Doula and Childbirth Educator. I earned my B.S. in Integrative Therapeutic Practices in 2010 and my M.a. in Teaching and Learning in 2017. Eventually, I made the transition to elementary education so that I may serve families and children in a new and exciting way. I am passionate about play based learning which is both challenging and developmentally appropriate.
My husband, Chris, and I are celebrating our 18th year together. We have three children ages 4 years, 9 years, and 18 years. We also have two dogs and two cats. There is never a dull moment in our home! We enjoy backyard BBQ's, Gardening, Fishing, and just spending time together.
I have heard fantastic things about Westgate students and families and I am excited to get to know you all this year!
