Ms. Rita Nolan
Hello! My name is Ms. Rita Nolan and I am a Pre-K teacher here at School 16. I have been teaching for 32 years. I have taught in both the Mt. Vernon and Yonkers school districts; having 30 years in Yonkers. The grades that I have taught are Pre-K, K, 2nd, 3rd, and 6th, and I have been in several of the schools within the district.
I have three grown children; one girl and two boys. My daughter is a registered nurse and my two boys are currently in college, a senior and a sophomore. While they are all away my wonderful and loving dog, Ruby, is always by my side keeping me company.
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.
If you need to reach me, you can text me on Class Dojo, email me, or call the school and I will get back to you as quickly as possible. I am looking forward to a fun-filled year of learning with your child.
I am thinking of all of you during this very difficult time. I am missing all of your children and wish that I could be there with them in person during this challenging time. Please send them my love and let them know that I am thinking about each and every one of them, as well as, their family. As a teacher and a parent, I realize that this is a trying time for all of us. Stay well and be safe. Remember to practice "social distancing" by staying at least six feet away from others.
During the emergency school closing please refer to Class Dojo for all updates and assignments. I will post the "WEEKLY" assignments under the "ASSIGNMENTS" tab, as wel as Class Dojo. Class Dojo will be my main source to assign the work on, especially the daily work. Please make sure to date your child's work and to take a picture of the assignment. This way yourchild will receive credit for the work that he/she has completed. Please contact me via Class Dojo or my email should you need any assistance. I am here to help you in any way that I can.
PLEASE LOOK UNDER ASSIGNMENTS TAB FOR ASSIGNMENTS AND USEFUL INFORMATION. I am available from 10am - 1:30pm during schooldays. The assignments will always be on Class Dojo and I will add the WEEKLY assignments to the ASSIGNMENT tab as well.
Please log in and use Clever every day. There are so many useful learning apps for your child to learn and grow with.
