About Ms. Mathey
Hello! My name is Hanna Mathey and I am honored to be the K-6 Arts and Humanities teacher at Mary A. Goetz Elementary. The Arts have always been a major part of my life, and I love teaching students of all ages and ability levels. I love to sing and play music. I play the violin, viola, ukulele, kazoo, and all sorts of other instruments!
I grew up in Sycamore, IL, and moved to Chicago, IL where I received my bachelors degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University in Music Education with Viola. After spending over a decade teaching music in the Chicago Public Schools, I found my way here to Ludlow, and have loved all the region has to offer!
