Ms. De Gaetano

Hi Everyone!! 

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!! My name is Ms. De Gaetano and I am one of the six teachers, who teach in the Autism Department. We are better known as the RHS A- Team! This is currently my third year at Roosevelt High School and my fifth year working for Yonkers Public Schools. In our class we also have our lovely teaching assistant Ms. Flannery. She has been working in the Yonkers Public Schools District for the past 19 years in Special Education. In the previous ten years, she has been working in the autism program. This is our third year working together and we are so excited to have your students in our classroom.

These past six months have been challenging for everyone and especially on our students during the COVID-19 pandemic. I know this is not our traditional start to the school year, but I will assure you we are in this together and will get through it together. I am always here, not only for students, but their families as well. Please understand your safety, and when our students return, their safety is my number one priority and I will do anything I can to keep us all safe.
