Mrs. Cindy Matthews

Hi, I'm Cindy Matthews, and I teach fourth graders. There is nothing I'd rather do. I love how fourth graders think, and one of my favorite things about teaching is just listening to my students when they come in mornings and share with me. They tell me about their ballgames, playdates, and family stories.

I love the look of pride on their faces when they finally "get" something they have struggled with. Oh - and I love, love, love the hugs.


I am married to Paul, my high school sweetheart. We have two beautiful daughters, Liz and Caty. We also have one bad tempered cat and a very hairy dog. We are a very close family, and we do lots of things together. We love old movies and new ones too. We tailgate at Alabama football games in the fall, and travel in the spring and summer. Our favorite places to visit are the United Kingdom and the Magic Kingdom. We go to Disney World every year but not so often to Britain. Planning our trips is almost as fun as going. We start months in advance and cover every detail as much as possible. For our next Spring Break we are planning another trip to Disney World.
