Mrs. Erin Mattei
My name is Erin Mattei and I am so excited be a part of the Cockrell Elementary and Prosper ISD communities! This year marks my 16th year in education and 11th year as a librarian. My career in education began when I graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station in 2005 (WHOOP!). Upon graduation, I served as an instructional aide in 5th grade in Frisco ISD. Thereafter, I taught 2nd & 3rd grades. Reading has always been a passion of mine. As a result, I decided to continue my education and went on to earn my Master's in School Librarianship at the University of North Texas in 2011. During that time, I left the classroom and opened up a brand new library in Frisco ISD. After 7 amazing years at my former campus, I decided to make the move north to Prosper. I am so excited to serve our amazing Prosper community.
When I'm not helping to connect students with their next great reads or working with teachers to integrate technology into classroom lessons, I love spending time with my husband of 15 years, amazing 7-year-old daughter, and spunky Shih Tzu pup Bucky. I LOVE to read, travel, and am an AVID half-marathon runner!!
I am looking forward to another wonderful year my Prosper ISD career!
