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.
