Mr. O'Neill

I am a proud father, educator, and lifelong learner. This will be my 12th year of teaching social studies, previously in NYC and now my 6th year at Lincoln High School, located in my hometown of Yonkers.

This upcoming school year we'll do our best to reinforce a classroom culture built on mutual trust and understanding. Also, understand that my expectations remain high for all involved, so we should be ready for anything as we navigate another school year of post-Covid restrictions.

I am teaching 2 subjects this year, Century Honors US History and Government and Participation in Government and Economics. 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 Schoology as part of our learning platform and also as a means of communication. Please make sure you can login and access your Schoology account to monitor class happenings as it will be the way I contact my classes as a whole and students individually with pertinent information.

Keep in mind that I can also always be reached by email at joneill1@yonkerspublicschools.org.

Wednesday is the day we meet for Enrichment/Extra Help, from 2:39pm-3:15pm in room 335. Please take advantage of this resource to aid you in your journey towards academic mastery. 

I hope you and your families are well. Reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have. Please take care of yourself, and others.
