Mrs. Becky Mathews
Welcome to our 5th grade class! I am so excited to meet each of you! Even though this year looks nothing like any other, feel confident that we are going to learn together and make it one to remember!
I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been teaching elementary school for 14 years. All of those years have been right here at Winecoff Elementary! I am a proud Leopard! I taught 4th grade for most of those years. I joined the 5th grade team last year and my specialty is math.
I have been married to my awesome husband for 28 years and we have two grown sons, Jon and Austin. Jon and his wife are domestic missionaries at NC State University and Austin is a college student, is in the Army National Guard, and works at Food Lion. My husband and I both teach math. He teaches at JM Robinson High School. I love to bake and spend time in the mountains.
My goal each year is to convince students that MATH IS AMAZING!!! Many students come into my class saying things like "I'm no good at math!" "I'm not a math person." "I hate math!" I spend the year working with students to change that thinking. EVERYONE has the ability to be successful at math! Can't wait to make YOU a believer!!
