Dr. Rachel Pagano
Hi, I'm Dr. Pagano, the 7th/8th grade ELA teacher at Cedar Place. I look forward to helping your child grow to his/her fullest potential as reader, as a writer -- and hopefully as a human being! This is my tenth year in the Yonkers school district, and I am passionate about what I do. It is truly my privilege to be able to serve your family and community. Contact me whenever you like!
Grading policy: Homework is given in ELA on a nightly basis. Homework counts for a full 25% of your child's grade! Essay grades, project grades, and quiz/test grades count for 50% of your child's grade. The remaining 25% of your child's grade is based on classwork: This includes attitude, effort, and output.
