My name is Mrs. Matos. I obtained my BA certification (K-12) from Rutgers University in 1997. I have been a teacher at Weehawken H.S. since 1999. I teach Spanish 1 Elective 7&8, Sp. II, Sp. III, and Sp. IV AP. My mission is to help students develop their Spanish language and Hispanic cultural proficiency. I obtain great satisfaction from seeing each student's success. In order for me to teach effectively, I foster student learning by serving as a guide, and resource. I enjoy teaching and hope that each student enjoys being part of my class.

If a student misses any quizzes or tests, he/she has a week to make it up. It is the student's responsibility to contact me as soon as they get back to schedule a make up date. A failure grade will be assigned until the Test/Quiz is made up. In case of an extended excused absence, modifications will be made and additional time will be provided. Failure to make up within time allowed, will result in a permanent failing grade.
Students can come for extra help in room 125 from 3-3:30 PM. Each student must notify me in advance.
All assignments, announcements and resources will be posted on Google Classroom. Students are responsible to check it daily.
