Mrs. Deb Matthews


Hello!  I am Deb Matthews, one of the special education teachers here at Grewenow since 2005.   I grew up in Michigan’s upper peninsula, so I am an official Yooper!  I graduated from Northern Michigan University in Marquette with degrees in elementary education and special education.   My first teaching position was at a middle school outside of Kalamazoo, Michigan. I took several graduate courses in Learning Disabilities at Western Michigan University.

My family and I then moved to Athens, OH, for a few years and then, of course, to Kenosha.  I have my Masters degree from Carthage College in Reading.

I have two children in college and one very small dog.  In my spare time I enjoying reading, especially historical fiction.  I like to watch for wildlife while walking and hiking.  I also enjoy biking and spending time with my family.
