     Hello! This is Ms. Matera welcoming you all to the 2020-2021 school year!  I have been teaching  over 20 years, and have been a member of School 9 family for 6 years.  I am passionate about children being able to dream big.   I am very much  aware of their various ways of learning and the challenges they face especially now.  Hence, I try to use an eclectic style of teaching where children have more than one opportunity to master their skills and become successful leaders in our society.  Life has taught me to be positive because "great things happen to those who keep on believing, keep on learning, and are always grateful."



    Our School will be using Microsot Team for virtual learning and assignments.

    Please check out Understanding Microsoft Teams/Office 365 Page.

    Click links below to watch these informative videos and familiarize yourself on how the program works.


    For now, I will also be using Class Dojo and Clever as other means of communications.

    My hours are from 8:30 - 3:15  Monday - Friday

    If your child receives ENL Services from Mr. Dominguez or Ms. Mays, please go to their School 9 webpage.
