Miss Monica Mattinson

 I am so excited about the 2021-2022 school year at Star Middle School! This is my 13th year of teaching Social Studies, and I am so happy to be back in the 7th grade teaching World Civilizations. We are going to have a wonderful adventure together. I have my teaching endorsements in Social Studies, U.S. History and Political Science. I have a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from NNU. I received Master Teacher from the Idaho Department of Education in 2019.

I truly believe that all students can learn. It is tapping into their interests and learning through reading, writing, listening, speaking, inter/intra personal skills, art and music. My goal as a teacher is to help your student meet their academic and life long goals.
I love outdoor Idaho! I spend hours and hours exploring the beautiful dirt trails around us. I love gardening, reading, shopping and most of all spending time with my family and friends, especially my two children Matt and Madisson and my little dachsund, Penny Lane.
