The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Marian Mattice as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in education. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 700,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“I’m pleased to present Marian with this important honor,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her knowledge and experience in education are valuable assets to her students and community.”
Marian Mattice’s elementary school teachers inspired her to pursue a career in education from a young age. She greatly enjoyed their encouragement of her expressiveness and creativity. Her leadership blossomed in the classroom through helping students with cognitive impairments, which turned out to be her inspiration to double major and study special education. Ms. Mattice continues to educate others in her roles as Teacher at The Brookwood School and Teacher at
The Farmer’s Museum.
At the Brookwood School, Ms. Mattice teaches children ranging from ages 18 months to five years. In addition to teaching, she also writes and presents detailed evaluations for the lead teachers of individual student groups. Ms. Mattice has also enjoyed her role as Museum Teacher at The Farmers’ Museum educating visitors on the vast history of life during the 1840’s.
From raps to puppets, Ms. Mattice facilitates a wide variety of muses in the classroom to keep students engaged and excited to learn. Her creativity in the classroom and dedication to using all eight of Howard Gardener’s Intelligences show her flexibility and well-roundedness.
Ms. Mattice considers her longstanding passion for educating others to be her biggest accomplishment, and finds it both rewarding and significant. “Throughout my career, I have enjoyed watching the progress made and attainment of new skills by my students,” she says. In the near future, Ms. Mattice looks forward to returning to The Brookwood School in August. Come September, she will leave The Farmer’s Museum to take on a full-time position teaching reading, writing, mathematics, social studies and science skills to elementary level children.
NAPW’s mission is to provide an exclusive networking forum to successful professional
women where they can aspire, connect and achieve. Through innovative resources, tools and
benefits, members interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
