Name: Chelsey Mathews
Title: Team Operations Lead
Years on Team: 4 Years
Areas of Focus and Responsibilities: Chelsey works on Team Operations, which means she helps to run the team as a small business and doesn’t focus on building the robot. For the past four years, she has done a lot of event and fundraising planning for the team. She has also worked on the website, social media, and has helped write applications for FRC’s “submitted awards.”
Impact FIRST has had: “FIRST has had a huge impact on me. It’s a great organization to be a part of, with great values, that teaches students so much more than STEM. The biggest thing I have learned is improved communication skills over the last four years. I feel much more comfortable speaking to a large group than I did four years ago.”
Favorite 4909 memory: “My favorite memory on Team 4909 was going to the World Championships in Detroit, Michigan in 2019!”
Plans After High School: She will be attending Westfield State University to major in Elementary Education and Special Education.
Ideal Job: Her ideal job is as a fourth-grade teacher in a small public school.
