All About Mrs. Matyja

Hello parents and welcome to First Grade at Northwest School in Evergreen Park!
I want to begin by saying that "Northwest is the Best!" I have been fortunate to have been teaching at Northwest School for my entire teaching career! This is my 31st year at NW! I have taught Kindergarten, First grade, and Second grade. I love working with children and can't imagine doing anything else. I have 2 grown children of my own...My son Michael is 28 and works as a project manager for a constructiona company. He just married his adorable wife Aleks last year in June. My daughter Michelle is 26 and is a Kindergarten teacher (like her mother) in CA. My wonderful husband John and I just got a Malshi puppy this summer named LilyAnne Rose. She is so sweet! We are really enjoying her. I also speak Polish and wiil be teaching the first graders a few words and phrases. I am looking forward to a great year with your children. It will be a year filled with learning and fun.
