Beloved NYC school member retires after more than 40 years

For more than 40 years, one woman has played an influential role at New York City schools, and now the 92-year-old is ready to move on and retire. Johanna Pontillo – forty-one of those years were spent at FDR High School in Borough Park as a paraprofessional.
She greets students, reads to them and encourages them…. “I think kids know when you respect them, that’s the whole thing,” … “I’ve had kids tell me things so personal they wouldn’t tell people in their family and they know I don’t repeat it or lecture, I just listen to them.” ABC7 New York video
