Welcome to Weehawken High School! My name is Mr. Matthew Whitford and I am a new teacher to the Weehawken community. I am very excited to join such an innovative and progressive district. My teaching responsibilities consist of The Real World: Financial Literacy and Career Exploration, as well as AP Economics. My goal is to help students become knowledgeable young adults in a our fast-paced society, understand personal financial decisions and the impacts they have, begin to brainstorm possible careers, and critically think about current national and global issues.
Prior to joining Weehawken High School, my own "real world" experiences came from working on Wall St. and in Newark Public Schools. I received a BS in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance from Ramapo College and a MA in Teaching from Montclair State University.
