Degrees and Certifications:

Welcome Class of 2027!!!

My name is Ms. Payano and I have been a part of the School 9 community since 2016. This is my 5th year teaching six grade. Before I joined the School 9 community, I was teaching in The Bronx for five years. Teaching is my passion and I enjoy the benefits of seeing my students reach their goals academically, socially and emotionally. I look forward to working with my six graders and supporting them to become life-long learners. 

This year six grade will be using Microsoft Teams for virtual lessons and assignments. Please check out Understanding Microsoft Teams/Office 365 Page to watch a video on how Microsoft Teams works and to help you understand the features and layout of Teams/Office 365. We will also use other platforms such as Clever and NearPods. Please note that Mr. Jaxel and I will use ClassDojo as another means of communication. If you have any questions, concerns or need additional support with assignments, I am available via email between 8:15am - 3:15pm, Monday-Friday at mpayano@yonkerspublicschools.org
