Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten
My name is Sandi Fanek and I am excited to be your child's teacher. This is my 21st year teaching in the Yonkers Public Schools. This is my 20th year here at School 9. I have had the opportunity to teach Pre-K, 3rd and 6th grade throughout my career. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband, my son, and our dog Princess Bella.
I look forward to working in collaboration with students and their families to ensure the academic success of all my students in Pre-K. It is imperative that we all work together as a team in order to help make this happen. Assignments will be posted on my class page (on the left under assignments) and on Seesaw (our learning platform). If you have questions, concerns, or need help with assigned work please email me firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me through ClassDojo. I will be available Monday-Friday from 8:35-3:15. I am looking forward to a fun and exciting school year, both virtually and in person.
