EMERGENCY DISTANCE LEARNING CONTACT HOURS:
MONDAY - FRIDAY 2:00 TO 3:00
The district platform for my students this year is TEAMS and the CLEVER platform contains the links to the programs I will be using to teach. I will continue to use CLASSTAG as my messaging system for parents.
I AM ON MY COMPUTER MOST OF THE DAY.
Just a few gentle reminders after experiencing two weeks of online work: Please assure that your child is signed in on time and ready to work.
So as not to distract your child please remove yourself from the immediate area as it is a distraction to the learning process for all.
Please asure that your child complete the required time on the apps assigned.
Lastly, please be mindful of attendance. I have to mark children absent who do not show up.
Together we can make this process work.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR EFFORTS AND BE SAFE.

+Welcome Back to a new and exciting school year filled with much RIGOR AND HAPPINESS! I am so excited to be beginning my fourth year here at Montessori 31. Together I have made wonderful memories with my students and we share the understanding that we need to work together to bring about CHANGE!
My teaching career began way back in the late seventies and early eighties as a parochial school teacher in Brooklyn, New York. From there my journey would take me to corporate America and back to school. The journey finally connected all my dots and so I returned to education. I have been a Yonkers teacher for the past twenty three years and have enjoyed my time at Montessori School 11 which evolved into Yonkers Montessori Academy. I was hired as the school librarian back in 1997 when Montessori School 11 opened. Two years later I trained for my 6 - 9 certification and began teaching Primary 1, 2, 3. After a few years the district went to two year configurations and so I trained for 6 to 12 certification which allowed me to teach the 3rd and 4th grade. This was to last until the district returned to three level configuration and once again I returned to the Primary 1, 2, 3 level. I have just completed my Early Education training and have taught Pre K - k. My time has been rich and so my journey brings me to Montessori School 31where once again I will be working with Primary 1,2, 3. I hold New York State certification N - 6 in Early Childhood Elementary Education and New York State certification in both school and public libraries.
I am humbled to have been awarded Elementary Teacher of the Year for Yonkers, 2019 - 2020, and look forward to working with your children and learning many lessons from them for they are my teachers within the Montessori community. Learning never ends and so I anticipate many great moments of learning. The expectation of my room is that EVERYONE, including MYSELF, give their very best effort and grow each day as an ACTIVE PARTICPANT in the learning process. Together we can witness great moments of learning if we give our very best effort.
Please do not hesitate to contact me via email if you should have any questions or concerns. I do not text but I do check my email daily. Once again, thank you for entrusting your child to my care. I look forward to the year ahead.
