Welcome to Westbrook Elementary!


Hi, my name is Tia Matlock, and I am looking forward to teaching 4th and 5th grade this year! I have a business degree from West Texas A&M University and attended classes at Region 18 in Midland to gain my teacher certification in 2001.  I have taught for fourteen years, and most of it falls in the 4th and 5th grades.  

 I have been married to Coach Matlock, for 17 years. We have two children, who also attend Westbrook, Zoe and Parker.  We have two dogs, one horse and one cat!  We enjoy spending time together, and are involved in stock showing, sports and spending time on the lake.

 This year, Westbrook is going strong!  We are aware of all the different ways that students can learn.  We are current with the latest research on how to keep students engaged.  We want to offer our students the best.   We will be loading videos and pictures that will help the students throughout the year.   The videos will be posted on my website. We will be communicating through Remind and Seesaw.  This will have information on what we do almost daily in class.  If you don't see what you're looking for, please call, send a note or email and I'll do my best to answer your questions!

The students are highly involved in classroom learning, therefore, we cannot recreate the classroom experience when a student misses.  When possible, please carefully schedule appointments.  We value our time together. 

 Once again, I am very excited to take part in your student's life.  I treat students as though they are my own,  I keep high expectations in all areas, discipline, character, academics and sportsmanship. We are going to have a wonderful year!
