Cheryl Mathews-

Before Children I was into body building and a personal trainer at World Gym. I also did modeling commercials for World Gym. I was also an avid  skier, surfer, and running a 5 or 10 K somewhere. I was  always at the beach. I was born and raised in Oceanside...I'm a rare breed, true So. Cal native girl.  I am an AZTEC...S.D.S.U. Alumni!! There I received my Bachelor's in

Liberal Arts, Learning Handicap Credential, and Multiple Subject Credential. I went on to U.C.S.D. earning my Resource Specialist Credential. I taught in Vista Unified School District for 10 years. I missed being at the beach, and divine intervention stepped in...there was an opening at O.U.S.D. for a Resource Specialist here at Lincoln.  I've been at Lincoln ever since then. 

 Now it's all about yoga, Swami's Beach and living a healthy lifestyle. I have 2 beautiful boys...21, and 23 now. Still my babies. My oldest is a  Skateboard Photographer and several adds published in THRASHER magazine. My baby is the "TECHY" in the family! He's in college majoring in technology.... to teach his Mother. I'll get there, through osmosis!! Now, my life is still crazier than ever, and even more fulfilling!

I am a brand new addition to Lincoln Middle School as of 2016. I received my undergraduate degree from PLNU along with my Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential in 2010 and my Education Specialist Credential from CSUSM in 2014. As an Education Specialist I try to make my classroom a place that is adaptive to all learners, flexible, and fun. I like to think of my room as the custom design body shop of the seventh grade at Lincoln Middle School. Anything that can be modified or skills that need extra practice, my room is the place. I'm excited about the potential for adaptive self guided computer programs and integrating the best technology into our math program over the next few years. When I am not teaching I can be found chasing waves in Baja most weekends and across the globe when given an extended vacation. In the summers I work as a Lifeguard EMT for San Diego Fire and Rescue at Windansea beach in La Jolla. In the winter if the snow is falling in the Sierras you can find me any given morning on the first chair to the top at Mammoth Mountain ready to snowboard.

Welcome to Lincoln. I have been with OUSD for the past 22 years. I have B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Wisconsin in Communicative Disorders. Prior to moving to California with my two, now adult children, I practiced in the Chicago area. My work experiences include running a Speech/Language Clinic, working with Preschoolers through High School age. in addition, I taught at Columbia College and worked at North Chicago VA hospital. As you can see, I enjoy and respect working with all age groups. My personal passions beyond my family are in theater and photography. I look forward to meeting you.
