My name is Matthias Drewry. I am the 6th grade Social Studies teacher, and this is my twentieth year as an educator and my first year at Sallie Humble Elementary. First, I want to put your minds at ease. As you know, we are undergoing a unique time in history, and the educational systems are greatly being impacted by the effects of COVID-19. I want to let you know that we are working diligently to provide the best environment for your child's education on site and virtually. We will tackle these challenging times and be better for it when we come out on the other side, because working together we can accomplish anything.
Now, I would like to share some professional background information with you. First, I was born and raised in the area. After high school, I attended NLU, and I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a B.A. (Elementary Education 1-8) in May 2000. I also studied at Louisiana Tech University and ULM to earn my M.Ed. plus 30 degree (Administration and Supervision) in 2006. In the past, I served as an administrator, but I returned to the classroom seven years ago to teach again. Over my career, I’ve taught at Richwood High School, City Park Elementary (in Dallas, TX), Mangham Elementary, Lakeshore Elementary, once again at Mangham Elementary, Cypress Point University Elementary, and Levi Milton Elementary (in Livingston Parish).
To add, in 2015, I was selected as the “Richland Parish Elementary Teacher of the Year”, and in 2019, I was selected as the "Monroe City Schools Elementary Teacher of the Year."
Furthermore, on a personal note, I must say that I truly am blessed to be a part of such a great school system and school. The faculty, administration, and staff at Sallie Humble Elementary have made me feel right at home. I can truly tell this is an exceptional school! In closing, I want to thank Mrs. Dumas for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Sallie Humble family, and I look forward to serving you and your child this year.
