Staff Profile

My name is Morgan Matthews. 
I am thrilled to begin another year at Westgate Community School! 
I have been teaching for nearly 12 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. 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 21st year together. We have three children ages 7 years, 12 years, and 21 years. We also have 3 dogs and 2 cats. There is never a dull moment in our home! We enjoy backyard BBQ's, Gardening, Fishing, hiking, and just spending time together. 
I love serving Westgate students and families and I am excited to get to know you all this year!


Distance Learning and Office Hours

Hello Parents, 
From now through the end of the school year we will be participating in Distance Learning. Below is a list of times that you can contact me via zoom for immediate support. I will also be hosting an  Advocacy Zoom meeting twice a week for students. These are not required, but are a great way to set the tone for the week and then wrap up and reflect on the week. It also provides a time for students to connect to their peers and visit with me!

Tomorrow is Class Picture Day 1/18/19

Hello Parents,

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is Class Picture Day. Order forms were sent home on Monday and I have only had 2 students return their order to me. I will be sending home an extra order form with students today so please check your student’s backpack. I have also attached a scan of the directions to order online if necessary.

Kindergarten will be first to have their picture taken so please be sure to arrive to school on time and send the order form with your student.

Thank you so much!

Mrs. Matthews
