Mr. Vazquez's Webpage

Welcome!  I am looking forward to an excellent 2020-2021 school year at NBHS.  I hope everyone had a relaxing and safe summer amidst all of the recent craziness brought upon us.  I absolutely love mathematics and am hopeful my passion for the subject trickles down to my classes.  I am a firm believer in education and will do everything in my power to ensure I maximize all of my students' potential not just in the mathematics classroom, but in all subjects and aspects of life. 
While I much rather instruct my students in person, I have become a more well-rounded teacher due to the necessary transition to virtual learning.  Online resources such as Google Classroom, Google Meet,,, KhanAcademy, Explain Everything and various math educational outlets have been used on a daily basis to help reach the diverse learning needs of each student.  Feel free to contact me at

About Me:
The 2020-2021 school year will be my 12th year teaching Mathematics at North Bergen High School.  I am the Head Coach for the Boys Volleyball team.  I attended New Jersey City University as an undergraduate from 2005-2009 receiving a B.A. in Mathematics Education and returned back to NJCU as a graduate student where I earned my Master's Degree in Mathematics in 2013.  Along with continuously furthering my education for the past couple of years, I have taught summer courses at NJCU for the past 3 years.
