Mrs. Valerie Lendor-James



Welcome to 5th Grade!

My name is Valerie Lendor-James.  My students call me Mrs. James.  I began teaching at School 16 in 1999.  My teaching experience ranges from preschool through high school, with most of it being as a 5th grade teacher.  I love being a part of the School 16 family and look forward to getting to know you and your child.   

Fifth grade is departmentalized.  I teach all 5th graders Math and Social Studies.  My partner, Mrs. Myers, teaches English Language Arts (ELA) and Science.  We work together to provide enriching learning activities for our students.    

In my personal life, I am married with 2 grown sons.  I have 2 grandsons.  I enjoy reading in my spare time.  I also enjoy traveling, especially to the Caribbean, Mexico and Europe.

The best way to contact me is through Class Dojo.  My email is vlendor-james@yonkerspublicschools.org.  You can also leave a message for me by calling the main office at 914-376-8340.
