CEDAR Grove, NJ - Mr.  Matt Bellantoni, one of the many teachers at Cedar Grove High School, definitely deserves the spotlight as the teacher of the week.

Mr. Bellantoni started to pursue his career as a biology teacher in 1975, after he completed his credentials to teach. This year will be Mr. Bellantoni’s 25th year as a teacher at Cedar Grove High School. The reason he decided to be a teacher here at Cedar Grove is because he loved the size and location of the school.

One of the many rewarding moments for Mr. Bellantoni at Cedar Grove was when he found out that four boys that he used to tutor at a young age, all became great doctors. His most difficult moment as a teacher was when he had to learn how to become an effective teacher when he first began teaching.
