Mrs. Heather Matos

I am the Kindergarten through 5th grade self-contained special education teacher at Paine Elementary. This will be my second year at Paine, but my 26th year teaching. I have experience with infants and children from birth through 5th grade. I have worked in Alabama, Virginia, and overseas in Germany as a contractor providing special education services to military families. I believe all children can learn and I strive to teach my students to become as independent as possible.

My husband, Casey, and I have been married 1 ½ years. My stepson, Grant, is a junior at Moody High School. I have two daughters. Zoe is a 9th grader at HTHS and Keelani is a 6th grader at HTMS. We enjoy mountain biking, road biking, hiking, swimming, and gardening. I love being outdoors, going to church, and going to the movies.
