Published by:

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
