I received my bachelors degree in English from the University of South Carolina and my masters degree in teaching, also from the University of South Carolina. Go Gamecocks!


This is my first year at Newberry High School, but my second year of teaching. I taught English I and career prep at Westwood High School in Blythewood before becoming a Bulldog!


Hello, Bulldogs! I'm so excited about this school year and I look forward to getting to know you all better! 

My name is Mattie Talbert and I am originally from Irmo. I graduated from Dutch Fork High School in 2007 and continued on to Carolina to earn both of my degrees (even though I was raised a Clemson fan!) I currently live in Chapin and am engaged to be married in December! I have 3 dogs and I am a huge dog lover! I enjoy spending time with my fiancé, my family, friends, and of course, my dogs. I also like to read and spend time outdoors.

I have a passion for teaching and I love spreading my love of English literature and language to my students.
