Welcome to the 2017-18 School year.
My name is Mrs. Mattoon and I will be teaching your student in History this school year in 6th and 8th Grade. I also direct the school 6-8th grade advent service and the 6-8th grade musical.
I have been teaching for 29 years at St. Paul's. I spent my first 12 years in Kindergarten and Music and my next 17 have been in sixth grade and the wonderful addition of the school musical.
I am blessed to be part of the St. Paul's family, and my own family includes my husband Steve who is on the Student Leadership team at Orange Lutheran and my son Joshua (23) is living in Northern California and enjoying working on a food truck in the Bay Area, and my daughter Shelby (20) who attends cosmetology school and is staying in the area.
I did my undergraduate and graduate work at Christ College, now known as Concordia University Irvine.
I received my BA in Teaching in 1988 and my MA in Curriculum and Instruction in 90.
I work with new teachers in the Induction Program though the Orange County Department of Education.
I have increased my studies with classes in Common Core, Project Based Learning and Differentiated Instruction.
I love to go to the beach, read, go to movies, spend time with friends and family.
I love sharing information and passion for the Lord and our the history of our world with your children.
