Welcome to Mrs. Maffet's
5th Grade Class!
I am blessed to be entering my 9th year in the teacher profession. Previously, I taught for three years in the Philadelphia School District and before that, I taught for three years in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Both previous teaching positions were great opportunites, but being at Birches is like being back home. I am a Washington Township Graduate who started at Wedgwood Elementary school, then went to Chestnut Ridge for Middle School, and eventually graduated from the high school.
After graduating from Washington Township, I continued my journey to Cairn University in Langhorne, PA. I graduated with honors and obtained a bachelors degree in Elementary Education, a bachelors degree in Biblical Studies, and a certificate in English as a Second Language.I am currently at the University of Wilmington for a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I am looking forward to a innovating and exciting year with our 5th graders at Birches Elementary School. My goal for the students is to show them that they matter and that education matters. I want them to value themselves and to value others. I believe each day is a new opportunity to learn and to show the world what kind of person you are. I hope that my students love their experience in my classroom and learn that people matter and that they matter.
Outside of school, I love spending time with my husband and our two boxer dogs, Reef and Rooney. We love to hike, go to the beach, fish, and explore the outdoors.
