Mrs. Alexandra Credendino

Hello!  My name is Mrs. C and I'm the ENL teacher for Grades K-3 at Cesar E. Chavez School.

I earned my BA in English from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York, where I minored in Philosophy and was the Offprint Editor for the Skidmore News.  I received dual Masters degrees in Secondary English Education and Teaching English Langauge Learners from Syracuse University, where I tutored refugee newcomers and completed my practicum in the Syracuse City School District.

I taught high school English and ESL at X329 and alternative English at X227 in New York City for three years before joining the Yonkers Public Schools team in 2014.  

While at Cesar E. Chavez, I have worked with grades Pre-K through 8 and enjoy my duties as ENL Coordinator, Head of the Color Guard, Co-Chair of the 8th Grade Activities Committee, and Testing Coordinator.  I live in New Rochelle with my husband, our four children, and our cat Misty.
