Bethel Grade School

1st Grade Teacher There has never been another person on this earth that loves their job more than Beth Matthews. I have had the pleasure of both my children having her, babysitting her daughter myself, and also becoming friends. I get to hear all the sweet and funny stories from her days in the classroom. I have watched her pour countless hours and dollars into her room over summer break. She goes above and beyond to make her students feel like a family in her classroom. This year she implemented a calm down cube for kids to utilize when they feel overwhelmed, and they also do self-affirmations every morning to start their day. She puts so much attention into the little things and it blows my mind. She deserves every accolade that could be given, but would absolutely hate to be in the spotlight. This woman is gold, and our little school is beyond lucky to have her! Nominated by Lori
