Emily Matthews is not your typical STEM educator. Her unique fine art education has enhanced her ability to make science visual for her students. It also reinforces her belief that she can teach anything regardless of the skill or subject matter as an art teacher.
Ms. Matthews always knew she wanted to teach middle and high school students and began her teaching career at a middle school in Lilburn, GA.
Before joining Georgia Power, Emily worked for Scholastic, Inc. in the Scholastic Marketing Partners Division. She was the South Carolina Program Coordinator for Scholastic and Duke Energy’s Energy Efficiency Program, Power in EnergySM.
When you invite Ms. Matthews into your classroom be prepared for someone who uses unconventional tools, toys, or manipulatives to sneak the concepts into the learning experience.
“I have the ability to help students visualize the concepts of energy by using Skittles candy or Hula Hoops. I use my art brain for relational teaching which instills a sense of confidence in students. By using these tools as manipulatives I’m able to sneak the energy efficiency concepts into the instructional time,” says Emily Matthews.
Emily is a lifelong learner. When she’s not in the classroom,she’s teaching herself a new skill. She also has a big heart for charity and philanthropic endeavors that shape the minds of children.
Matthews is a graduate of the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education and a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art.
Emily Matthews is the Learning Power Education Coordinator for Atlanta Public Schools and North Fulton County.
