My name is Kelly Matson and I am the middle school math teacher and the 8th grade history teacher at Ophir STEAM Academy! I am passionate about education and teaching students how to analyze the world around them. Students entering my class will not only be met with an enthusiastic teacher but a teacher who requires students to think on their own and support their logic with evidence. Students will quickly come to the realization that I speak fast, have lots of energy, and invite them to rigorous learning. I am passionate about the outdoors and if you are a hiker you will see me on Auburn's trails often with my husband and our Rhodesian Ridgeback - Samson. I love tea, pumpkin spice lattes and Cheese It's!
