Hi! My name is Heather Mateus, and I will be teaching your first grader for the 2017-2018 school year.  This will be my seventh year teaching. I have worked previously as a second grade teacher and a Head Start instructor. I hold a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from Winthrop University, and I am currently working towards a master's degree in literacy.  Overall, I am eager to begin working with you and your child. I am confident that we will have a positive and productive school year.  Should you ever have any questions or concerns throughout the year ahead, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached by phone at (843) 462-7671 or by email at
