Principal's Message

My name is Marlana Matthews, I am honored to be with you at Cleveland Elementary School, serving as your principal.   This will be my eighteenth year in education. Four years in private school with the other thirteen in public school. I have my Bachelor’s Degree from UAB in Elementary Education and both my Master and Ed.S. in Instructional Leadership also from UAB. 

I am originally from Mobile and spent much of my childhood in different cities along the coast.  I moved to Birmingham when I married my wonderful husband, Paul, of 28 years.  We have two sons and a daughter-in-law that live in Madison.  My older son, Joshua  works out of Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville and is married to my sweet daughter-in-law Tiffany, who works at Huntsville Hospital.  My younger son, Cameron will be entering his Sophmore year at UAH this fall.  Our family is rounded out by one cat named Tiger  and a Yorkie/Mini-Schnauzer named Cooper.  

I can’t wait to see the amazing things that will happen at Cleveland Elementary School this year!
