Kelly Matz

Kelly Matz began her teaching career at St. Martha in 2009. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Louisville and later returned to earn a Master’s in Teaching. She married her high school sweetheart, Jeff, and they have two children, Alex and Logan. She enjoys taking walks and making silk flower arrangements. Teaching affords her the opportunity to demonstrate her creativity while positively impacting the lives of her students.

"I love the community at St. Martha. One example is our Kindergarten Kares club, where Kindergarten students make gifts for our school, the parish community, faculty and staff anonymously to show random acts of kindness."

Q & A with Mrs. Matz

 

Highlight of the year:

Kindergarten Kares is a highlight because it is a club I started with Kindergarten students to be a part of a community here at St. Martha. This club makes gifts for our school, the parish community, faculty and staff anonymously to show random acts of kindness.

Passion:

Watching children grow academically with my guidance, and as the year progresses, watching their confidence grow through their hard work and efforts.

Philosophy:

I believe in a giving, positive classroom. I also treat the children like they are my own. I love to challenge my students no matter what their ability level. They will rise to the challenge with love, care and compassion and believing in themselves.

Favorite part of teaching:

The smile on kids faces when I watch them learn and become successful academically from my guidance, love and care.

Favorite teaching memory:

When one of my students said, “I’m so glad I’m in your class….because I live loud like you do!”

Favorite thing about St. Martha:

My assistant Mrs. Merel, the faculty, our principals, and I love the parents and kids. Everyone is very caring and supportive at St. Martha.

My hope for my students:

My hope is that they continue to love to learn and that they had a great Kindergarten experience.

Fun fact:

I love to go on a walk everyday with my husband, and I love to snuggle with my cats!

Family is the Best Word

"The teachers are really vested in the kids long after they leave their classes. Family is the best word to describe St. Martha and prepared is the best word to describe my son after his time there.”

Being a Part of a Family
