Mr. O'Neill

I am a proud father, educator, and lifelong learner. This will be my 9th year of teaching social studies, previously in NYC and now my 3rd year at Lincoln High School, located in my hometown of Yonkers.

As you know our 2020-2021 school year shifted to a hybrid model of learning on October 5th. This is obviously a fluid situation and can change so we should be ready for anything as we navigate this unconventional school year. No matter what school looks like however, I am dedicated to helping you not just be successful in your academics but to also help you grow into adulthood with a sense of who you are and your place in the world.

I am teaching 3 subjects this year, Regents US History and Government, Participation in Government and Economics, and Global History and Geography 1. No matter which class you are in you can expect to learn in an engaging way centered on answering important historical and modern-day questions that impact our lives. We will be using Microsoft Teams as our learning platform and main means of communication. Please make sure you can login to your Microsoft Office 365 account and access our class on Teams. You can find the link to your respective class Teams on my page's Teams Class Links tab.

As more information becomes available I will post it here but keep in mind that I can always be reached by Teams chat at @jONeill1 and by email at joneill1@yonkerspublicschools.org. Please monitor your school email account as it will be the way I contact my classes with pertinent information.

My day to see students for Extra Help/Office Hours is Wednesday, from 2:29pm-3:15pm. I can be seen in-person or remotely on that day so take advantage of me as a resource to aid you in your journey of academic growth. 

I hope you and your families are well in this time of uncertainty. Please take care of yourself, and others.
