Hello! My name is Lauren Matthews and I am very excited to start my 8th year of teaching First grade here at Aikin Elementary! My husband Joe and I have been married for 6 years and have two boys: Kasen who is 4 and starting PreK at TG Givens and Kye who will be one year old in September! We have two dogs named Jaxx and Zoey, and my family has been a part of Paris ISD for quite a while. I attended Aikin when I was in elementary school and have loved coming back to be a teacher here!
