Mr. Keith Matthews

Dear students and families,

I went to third grade in Federal Way where my parents live. They are retired teachers. You may have had my mother, Mrs. Matthews, as a substitute teacher recently.

I have taught at Marvista since 2005. I earned my Masters in Teaching from the University of Hawaii and before that a bachelors in Industrial Design from the University of Washington. I’m a Husky at heart! I enjoyed living and teaching on the island of Oahu, but moved back to Washington and bought my first home here in Normandy Park.

I love traveling and being outdoors. In winter you might find me skiing with my daughter, and in summer you might find me surfing on the coast or at a local garage sale.

We get to do lots of things I love in the classroom as well. In third grade we learn about Native Americans and Immigration, we do a science unit on the Rocks and Minerals, and of course we read a lot of great books and do some amazing writing!
