Office Hours: 2:15-3:15 p.m., Tuesday-Thursday
My name is Kerri Mathew and I am so excited to be returning for my 8th year at Higley High School and my 15th year as a classroom teacher. An Arizona native, I have been in the east valley since 2001. I have earned an undergraduate degree in English literature and history from the University of Arizona and a MA degree in literature from Arizona State University.
Since earning my degrees, I have continued studying history and language; however, my greatest lessons have come from experiences outside the classroom that have enriched my academic training. My personal loves include traveling, learning, and Hubert, my dog.
While teaching is my second career, I have always been a teacher at heart and have never regretted leaving the business world for the classroom. As far as I'm concerned, there is no more "real world" than the world of education, and it is my work to create the connections between learning and life beyond high school.
