Hello and Welcome to First Grade!

My name is Jennifer Grotto and I am overjoyed to be your child's teacher for the 2023-2024 School Year. This is my 28th year teaching in the Yonkers Public Schools.  I have taught PreK through 4th grades during my career.  I have an Undergraduate Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Reading.  I am also a Montessori Certified Teacher for the 3-6 year old child.  I am so excited to be teaching First Grade!

 First Grade is going to be an amazing journey filled with lots of new friends, adventures, and lots of learning!

I look forward to a wonderful year!
