Welcome to a new year at Mattawan Schools! I am excited to be able to have your child in my classroom. I look forward to a great year of learning and growth for your student. It is my belief that a working relationship with school and family enhances education.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Jolene Davey and I have been teaching at Mattawan for 14 years. Before this, I substituted in various schools in the area for 5 years. My masters degree in teaching is from Aquinas College. I received a specialization in Early Childhood Education as well. I also have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Western Illinois University. My daughter will complete her graduate degree at the University of Michigan in December . My son is working full time while taking his courses. I am proud to be able to start your child on the learning journey at our school! In my spare time I like to swim, bike, read and travel. You will hear a lot about my excitement for books this year. Over the summer, I have been working on some new ideas and collecting materials to enhance our new year as a classroom. My students last year were very excited about literacy and I am looking forward to helping your child on their adventure in literacy!
