CTE at Yonkers Montessori Academy

Career & Technical Education Month Focus

  • Yonkers Montessori Academy is proud of its first year offering a Pre-teaching Career and Technical Education program.

    During this first year, we are garnering student interest and building sustainability by offering an introductory course to current ninth grade students.

    In addition, a College Link Course in Early Childhood Education is being offered through a partnership with Westchester Community College. Juniors and Seniors enrolled in this 3 credit course, will not only gain knowledge of the theory and practice of early childhood education, but participate in valuable observations and hands-on learning activities in YMA’s pre-primary classrooms.

    Mrs. Sharon Governali, Teacher has been on the planning team and CTE advisory committee for 4 years, preparing for the launch of this program.

    Ms. Governali’s knowledge and expertise in Elementary, Secondary and Montessori education is invaluable as Yonkers Montessori Academy seeks NYSED approval as a recognized CTE program.

    She is not only certified in each of the aforementioned areas, she has been vetted by SUNY Westchester Community College to offer Intro to Early Childhood Education (ECE 170) and Foundations in Early Childhood Education (ECE 171).
