Ms. Trecia Gillett-Gontee
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. My name is Trecia Gillett-Gontee and I will be your Global History and Geography (10) teacher this year. This year marks the beginning of my 23rd year teaching and my 21st year within the Yonkers Public Schools system. While many things have changed, I remain committed to providing YOU with a quality education I would want for my own children.
Yet, many things HAVE changed. Most evidently, YOU are all learning REMOTELY. That means while you’re at home accessing your lessons, I am at Riverside providing you with your lessons. Because of this we need to become familiar with several programs to help the learning process.
- Microsoft TEAMS – Become very familiar with this program. This will be used as the PRIMARY source of your assignments, lessons, communicating with me and other resources. (Download the app to your phones, iPads and or computers. More video tutorials to come)
- NearPod – This program will be used to engage you with interactive lessons. This will be the primary way for me to take attendance will we are LIVE. (Download the app to your phones, iPads and or computers. More video tutorials to come)
- YouTube – My channel is NEW and a WORK IN PROGRESS. Visit it for videos, past lessons and other resources. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC33V9npAKyi3NJWppUR4kpQ
Teaching Periods: 1, 2, 3, 7, 8
Office Hours: Wednesdays 9:00-9:30am or by appointment
I look forward to seeing you all on September 8th for our first class.
