• Hello Cactus Coyotes!

    My name is Ms. Amy Matthews and this is my second year in the Palmdale School District and at Cactus Middle School. Since 2005 I have worked in the Los Angeles Unified School district as a Physical Education teacher, an athletic coach and an Athletic Director. My educational background includes an Associates in Arts Degree from Los Angeles Pierce College, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology, a Master of Arts degree in Educational teaching and learning and another Master of Arts degree in Educational Administration. I also have a single subject credential in PE and one in Administrative leadership.

    We have a lot of great things happening at CMS and are making a lot of changes for the better. As part of the Cactus team I am looking forward to working with our wonderful staff to help our students be ready for success in high school and beyond: college, career and the global world.

    Thank you for visiting our website and I hope as a team we can all work together to be successful!
