Welcome to the 2021-2022  School Year!


Greetings Parents, Students, and Visitors:

Who AM I? 

My name is Mrs. Fountain Coleman and I teach   1st and 2nd  Grade students in the 15:1:1 setting here at School 5. This is my 8th year in the Yonkers Public Schools. I am EXCITED to be here at school 5! I am New York State Certified in Special Education.  

My teaching philosophy is that all students are able to be successful if they are provided with an experience of equity, culturally responsive curriculum, safety, a nurturing environment that encourages learning.  My class is very individualized, but also focuses on creating a space where students can learn from each other.

As it relates to curriculum, we will be utilizing Benchmark for Reading and I-Ready for Mathematics. Students will be expected to utilize the district's Clever site to access additional curriculum programs throughout the year. To support your learner in emotional and behavioral support, we will be using restorative circle interaction, daily check-ins, and mindfulness techniques.

It is my hope to guide your learner in this current normal supporting both them and your family.
