Mrs. Matheny


Welcome to My Kindergarten Classroom


Background: Hi!  My name is Mrs. Sherri Beam Matheny.  I teach kindergarten at Jackson Park.  This will be my 29th year of teaching. I truly love teaching kindergarten!   My husband is Milton Matheny. He teaches technology at Kannapolis Middle School.  I am a lifetime resident of Kannapolis, NC. I have one daughter, Gracie, who is in third grade this year at Jackson Park!  I am excited to have your child in my classroom this year!  My favorite quote is "No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship." I truly believe this statement and strive to make that the foundation of my classroom.  If you ever need me, please do not hesitate to call, send a note in your child's red folder or email me. 

Education: I attended Jackson Park when I was in elementary school, so this is my home.  I graduated from A.L. Brown High School in 1986, which makes me a Wonder!  I graduated from Lenoir-Rhyne College in 1990, with a BA degree in Elementary Education.  I achieved National Board Certification in 2004, renewed my National Board Certification in 2013 and was chosen by the NC Department of Public Instruction as a NC Kindergarten Teacher Leader in 2007.  I have been a mentor to new teachers and was Jackson Park's Teacher of the Year in 2016.
