Matchin, Patricia
Educational Background:
Attended New Mexico State University, where I earned a BA in Psychology and a minor in Counseling and Educational Psychology. Several years later I returned to earn my MA in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in English and Special Education.
I began my teaching career as a substitute teacher. I loved it so much that I went back to school and earned my license and Master's in Curriculum. For two years I taught 7th and 8th grade Special Education students at Gadsden Middle School in Anthony, NM. My third year of teaching brought change. I was hired on as an Instructor for New Mexico Military Institute. I teach 9th and 10th graders as well as college students.
Honors, Awards and Publications:

I am currently serving as a senator on the Faculty Senate. I am also a member of the National Writing Project, in which I have become more involved within the past year.
