Meet Mrs. Matus!
Joined the Scottie Team in 2016
Hello! My name is Jennifer Matus and I am thrilled to be the counselor at Mahaffey Elementary!
I am originally from the Dallas area and a graduate of Plano East Senior High School. I attended the University of Texas at Austin
(Hook ‘Em Horns!) and moved to the Houston area in 1999 when I married my husband Brian. I began my teaching career in Klein in 2000 teaching 1st grade for 7 years. I obtained my Texas Counseling Certification in 2003 and have worked as a school counselor for the last 13 years. Brian and I are blessed to have two beautiful daughters, Lauren who is 16 and Madison who is 13. We love to attend our girls' activities, travel and spend time together as a family.
As a school counselor I am fortunate to work with every student on campus throughout the year. I am passionate about building relationships with students, teachers, parents and the community to create a nurturing learning environment where students can thrive socially and excel academically. I believe it is through strengthening positive character traits students grow and transform into leaders. I am excited to begin a new year as a Mahaffey Scottie and look forward to getting to know all of you and your children!
