Ms. Tori Mattia
Hi! I am a mother of four (yes, 4) amazing children! I grew up in Savannah, GA and I am a HUGE Georgia Bulldogs fan! After high school I lived in Panama and then moved to Upstate New York, where I spent the next 12 years of my life. All of my children were born in Cooperstown, NY where the Baseball Hall of Fame is. We love our Yankees!! This is my third year at CDO and I have the pleasure of having two of my boys, Dominick and Gavin (a SENIOR and a Sophomore), here with me and Liam and Katarina are at Mesa Verde Elementary. We are very involved in the Amphi schools and are proud to be a part of the Amphi family!
I also LOVE to travel and got to take students to the 75th anniversary of D-Day this past summer. You'll notice the picture of me on this page is with a former paratrooper who jumped behind enemy lines at Normandy and is "96.5 years old" as he says. He was one of several WWII veterans I had the pleasure of meeting and can't wait to share stories about the trip with all of you.
Philosophy on Education
I truly believe that it is important to teach children life skills and how to succeed both inside the classroom and outside of it. History is vital to the way we see ourselves and the world around us today. It is my goal to help students be confident in who they are, stand up for what they believe in, and to advocate for themselves. I understand that students learn in different ways and I strive to provide multiple outlets for them in the learning environment.
