    Mr. Matthews and Me
     My name is Julie Matthews and I am thrilled to be teaching fourth grade here at Red Oak!  This is my twelfth year teaching elementary school.  I have taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and this is my second year in fabulous fourth grade.  I love learning and knew at age three that I wanted to be a teacher!  I am an alumnus of both Pepperdine and Cal State University Channel Islands.  I have two Masters degrees and an administrative credential.  I am married to my wonderful husband, Steve.  On my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, doing projects around the house, gardening, shopping, and dancing.  I love animals; we have three dogs and a turtle.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year together!
