Kelly Matsuda

Fourth Grade Teacher

I have been teaching for 28 years, all of which have been with Poudre School District. It really is the BEST! I began my career teaching 6th grade at Johnson Elementary then happily landed here at Eyestone Elementary to teach 4th grade. I enjoy teaching because I love kids and watching them grow as learners. Building a relationship with each student creates trust, respect and ultimately a successful year. It is a privilege to be a part of their lives! What I love most about Eyestone is the dedicated staff. Everyday we come together and commit to doing what is best for the students. We truly are a FAMILY that laughs, cries, and learns together. I am blessed to work on a team with people who are my lifelong friends.

My hometown is Lincoln, Nebraska and I am a die-hard Nebraska Cornhusker football, gymnastics and volleyball fan! GO BIG RED!!!   Spending time with my family and friends makes me very happy.

My oldest daughter is a junior at Creighton University in Omaha.  She is starting her graduate work in Pharmacy School.  My  youngest is a competitive gymnast and a senior at Poudre High School. I love to be outside walking my dog, planting flowers, or just sitting in a chair soaking up the sun while reading a book.
