Sharon Matz is beginning her first year of teaching as the art instructor for Peabody-Burns Junior/Senior High School students. Matz earned her bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design from Kansas State University and has a graduate certificate in teaching and learning for K-12 art education. She also will serve as junior class sponsor.
“I am looking forward to getting to know my students and their interests, and helping them discover art as a creative outlet,” she said, commenting on her goals for the coming year. “I hope to be a positive influence and mentor for students and staff.”
Matz lives in Lincolnville, is married, and is the mother of two children, Jacob, 15, and Maggie, 11, both of whom are enrolled in Center schools.
“My door is always open for the students and patrons of the Peabody-Burns district,” she said. “I hope people will come and see what we are creating.”
