    Ms. Fail (Matos) 

    is a graduate of Cedar Crest College with a B.A. in Communications, and a Masters Degree in Middle School Education from George Mason University. This is her twenty-first year teaching in a middle school classroom, and her seventeenth year at Harper Park. This is her fourth year serving as the director for the spring musicals at HPMS. This year, in addition to teaching English, she will also teach Exploratory Dramatics, and she is thrilled.

            She has had two articles published: "Find That Child" in Chicken Soup for the Volunteer's Soul and "Feed Your Brain" in a professional journal. Her "Feed Your Brain" concept caught the eye of the American Library Association, and they have created posters which are displayed in schools and libraries across the country!  She enjoys bringing her publishing experiences into the classroom when she assists her students with their writing, editing, and publishing.
