Welcome to Second Grade!
My name is Lori Matney. I have been teaching for twenty-five years. Part of my teaching career was at Union Elementary. I had a wonderful time teaching second, third, and fifth grades with an awesome staff! When our school became too large, part of our staff moved to Norris S. Childers -The newest school in our county in 2006. Therefore, I have been at Childers for eleven years. For the first four years I taught fifth grade. After that, I was able to move to the grade I love most, second grade.
I wear many hats besides being a teacher at Norris S. Childers. I have a wonderful husband of twenty-five years, Tim. I have two awesome children, Tryston and Leah. Tryston just graduated from Gaston College with an Associates Degree and has transferred to Appalachian State College to obtain a degree in accounting. Leah is in ninth grade at WLHS and is active in many sports. Besides being a wife and mom, I teach swimming, Sunday school, and I am actively involved in my church, Anthony Grove Baptist. I also enjoy drawing, painting, photography, and crafts.
I look forward to a wonderful school year!!!
