MEET OUR COACHES
Coach Wandersee has had over 18 years of coaching experience (middle school, high school, co-ed high school, and competitive cheer teams) and also worked as a head UCA camp instructor for 8 years, traveling all over the country teaching camps, choreography, and tumbling classes. She attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where she cheered all 4 years on the Varsity co-ed team. In 2004 she served as a judge for the European National Championship and worked as a competition judge for UCA and Spirit Event Coordinators for 7 years. She taught and coached at Ted Polk Middle School and Newman Smith High School in Carrollton/Farmers Branch for 5 years, and for the past 9 years has been a 7th and 8th grade teacher and cheer coach at Cockrill. Coach Wandersee is starting her third season as an all-star cheer coach at Texas Dynamix in Plano. Coach Wandersee has two kids (first grade and third grade) at Wilmeth, and her husband is a realtor with Remax. Coach Wandersee’s love for working with students is evident in all that she does, whether it’s in the classroom, in the gym, or on the field.
Coach Matte has been a Science teacher for 11 years and cheer coach for three years. She was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. Coach Matte has a heavy background in dance and cheer and absolutely loves coaching at the middle school level. She danced for six years, starting at the age of 7. Her love for dance and choreography sparked her interest to cheer for three years in high school, but she soon discovered her love for dance was even stronger. She ended her senior year with dancing on her school’s drill team. After high school, Coach Matte attended Louisiana State University where she met her husband. She graduated with a degree in education and a minor in Earth Science before she went on to get her Masters degree in Educational Leadership. She has three sons who attend McKinney ISD schools. She is looking forward to this school year and spreading her love of cheer and dance to our CMS cheer team!
