Hello! My name is Ms. Rita Nolan and I am a Pre-K teacher here at School 16. This will be my 36th year of teaching. I have taught in both the Mt. Vernon and Yonkers School Districts; having 34 years in Yonkers. I have taught in several of the schools within the district. Teaching grades Pre-K, K, 2nd, 3rd, and 6th. I have three grown children; one girl and two boys. My daughter is a registered nurse and is currently finishing a nurse practitioner degree. My two boys have finished their undergraduate degrees. One has a masters' degree and is attending law school. My other son is currently working and applying to law schools. I love going home to my loving and very affectionate dog, Ruby.

I am so happy to have the opportunity to spend the year with you and your child. We will be learning many new things to prepare your child for Kindergarten. We will have a lot of fun learning by creating, exploring, building, discovering, singing, and playing. It is my expectation that your child will grow socially, emotionally, physically, and most importantly, academically. It is imperative that we work together as a team to make this happen. Please feel free to contact me via Class Dojo (Best), my school email (, or by phone @ 1(914) 376-8340.
