Dear Families and Students,


I am thrilled and honored to introduce myself as the new Assistant Principal at School 16. As we prepare to embark on an exciting journey of learning and growth, I wanted to take a moment to express my excitement and share a bit about myself.

My name is Mr. Stephen Rinaldo, and I am absolutely delighted to join the School 16 family. With a deep passion for education and a strong commitment to fostering a positive and inclusive learning environment, I am eager to contribute to the remarkable educational experience that School 16 is known for.

As a mathematics teacher in the Yonkers Public Schools for the last 15 years, I have had the privilege of working alongside dedicated educators, enthusiastic students, and supportive families. Together, we can create a nurturing space where each student's unique talents and abilities are celebrated.

Open communication and collaboration are at the heart of my approach to education. I am dedicated to working closely with you, our incredible families, to ensure that every student reaches their full potential. Your insights, questions, and ideas are invaluable to me, and I look forward to building strong partnerships that will make a lasting impact on our school community.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at with any thoughts, concerns, or simply to introduce yourself. I am here to support you and your children in every way possible. Together, we will continue to uphold the rich traditions of excellence that School 16 is known for while embracing new opportunities for growth and innovation.

Thank you for your warm welcome, and I am genuinely excited to meet each one of you as we embark on this exciting journey together.
