Jeannie Matovski

5th Grade ELA Teacher

"I will let them be little, I will fill their hearts with laughter, I will help them to grow wings, I will nature their sense of wonder, I will inspire them to believe, and I will love them like there is no tomorrow." This is my promise to my students. I take my position in their lives very seriously, and am constantly striving to become a stronger, more inspirational leader for them to aspire. I have been teaching for 5 years for a small community and have been enjoying every minute of it! I absolutely LOVE what I do and am very thankful for the role that I have been blessed with. Presently, I teach fifth grade Language Arts at Whitmore Lake Elementary School. I have 78 unique students, and am routinely trying to motive and encourage them to become the best that they can be. Through laughter, respect and struggles, we have grown close in our relationships which has made for a rich learning experience.
