Mrs. Irene Romanello

Welcome to school 17  "where learning is fun!" I am a teacher of English as a New Language (ENL) Working in collaboration with the classroom teacher.  The ENL program develops skills in speaking, listening, reading, and writing through content area instruction. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and are ready to begin the

2020-2021 school year.  Whether I see you in person or virtually, I am excited to be working with you this year! 


I will be working with ENL students in grades K, 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th grades and will be reaching out to families this week using Microsoft Teams and will post a schedule in the next week. To log into Microsoft Teams, your child must use the following information:
Username is - student's ID number @yonkerspublicschools.org
Password is - student's date of birth mm/dd/year (8 digits)


We will be using Benchmark, our new reading program this year, along with other resources to help improve our reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.



If you have any questions, you may email at iromanello@yonkerspublicschools.org or  message me thorough Microsoft Office 365 Teams Chat/Meeting,
