Mr. G

I want to welcome each of my students and their families to our class.  The 2020 - 2021 year will be my 25th in Yonkers Public Schools.  Prior to that, I served for several years as a teaching assistant at Westchester School for Special Children.   I look forward to working with all of you.     As you know, we will begin the year in a virtual format.   I believe, that working together we will maximize the effectiveness of this digital experience.   As always, I will rely on your feedback and input to fine-tune instruction, present lessons, assess and evaluate growth and success, and make necessary modifications.  This is even more essential in our current instructional format.   Upon returning to traditional instruction in October, I will reassess each student, establish our new schedule and routine, and begin working via our traditional formats.   I am certain that each of us, teachers, staff, and students, are looking forward to a return to normalcy.  Both, educationally and our daily lives.    

 

This school year we will be utilizing Microsoft Teams while virtual learning for live synchronous whole group lessons, small group lessons, and 1:1 instruction.  

Throughout the year, we will be communicating with you via the following:

  • Email: Reach me at jgiannantonio@yonkerspublicschools.org
  • Class Dojo: Class Link:  CLICK HERE FOR OUR CLASS LINK or enter the following into browser address bar: https://www.classdojo.com/invite/?c=CJA9PU6    You may also receive a text and/or email invitation which will enable you to connect to our class and allow you to send and receive messages.
  • Written:  Upon return to school, you may reach me via notes/letters. Please place them in your child’s folder and in a sealed envelope.   NOTE:   We will not be using a communication notebook this year. 
  • Phone: You may leave a message with our school office staff at 914-376-8585.  I will get back to you as soon as I can.

 

Though our main resources will be found through the CLASS WEBPAGE, CLEVER and BOOM we will also utilize other platforms.    You will receive detailed instructions for accessing each of these resources.    Please check each of these daily.
