Welcome to Mrs. Gunnell's homepage!

    (formerly Miss Matecki)
    My Journey:
    2010 graduate of Falconer Central School
     2011 graduate of JCC
    2014 graduate of SUNY Fredonia
    2014-2015 Teaching Assistant for Special Ed Department at Falconer High School
    It has all led me to this amazing position at Falconer as a full time teacher :) 
     Celebrating year three of teaching!
    During my first full-time year (2015-16), I taught 10th grade ELA, 9th grade ELA AIS, AIS Global History and AIS US History as well as co-taught in a 12:1:1 classroom setting with Mr. Muscarella for 9-12 grade ELA. Co-teaching carried over int the 2016-2017 school year, but the new school year also changed many grade levels around and led me to be a 9th grade ELA teacher. 
    This upcoming 2017-18 school year, I'm thrilled to be able to keep teaching 9th grade and explore all the amazing texts that are in store for this grade level as well as teach skills that will build a foundation for students to be successful in their upcoming high school years.
    Outside of the classroom, I'm also diving into my fourth season coaching JV volleyball and third season as the JV Softball Coach.
