Christal Matthews Bio

Hello! My name is Christal Matthews, and I am thrilled to start a new year with your sweet little ones in fourth grade! Wolford is like home to me, not only do I live in the Wolford community, but I was fortunate enough to begin teaching at Wolford when it first opened its doors.

This year, I will be teaching reading, writing, and social studies.  I love working with young writers as they build their craft.   It is definitely a time in the classroom where they can let their imaginations take over. I find it so rewarding to see the growth in the students’ progression of ideas and attention to detail from the beginning of the year to the end.  Fourth grade is also unique in that we focus on the history of Texas.  We will cover everything from geography, Texas’ road to Independence, to innovations and current events in Texas today.

If I’m not at school, you’ll probably find me at an athletic event, eating Mexican food at a nearby restaurant, or being goofy with my family.

I look forward to another great year at Wolford! Please feel free to contact me throughout the year. My door is always open!
