Ms. Matyac

My name is Maria Matyac and I am a First grade teacher here at the Primary building! This is my 4th year teaching and I could not be more excited for another fantastic year! I spent my first 3 years teaching preschool intervention at the New Albany ELC. I graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2020 with a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education and Early Intervention along with a 4th and 5th grade endorsement. I recently completed a Masters degree in English Language Learning. I’ve had some amazing teaching experiences in schools in England and Indonesia during my college career and I can’t wait to grow as an educator even more through my experiences in first grade!

When I’m not in the classroom, I love yoga, hiking, baking, art, traveling and all things creative!

I believe that our classroom is a family. We learn from each other, support one another, and encourage curiosity. I can’t wait to work together to create a school year that prioritizes whole-child growth!
