Hello! My name is Mr. John Gordon and I am on the 6th Grade Team and was the House Behavioral Analysist. I have been a dedicated teacher for 10 years in Elementary, Middle, and High School. I have worked in different districts but always wanted a position in Perth Perth Amboy. This is my second year as an In Class Support Teacher in Perth Amboy and I feel like I have found a home. I work with three groups in Science and Social Studies and very collboratly with four teachers.
I want to take a moment to welcome you to this very unconventional year. Due to an abundance of safety our district will be engaged in distance learning until November 18th. We are providing live instruction and adhering to the normal bell schedule. Students will go from Google Classroom to Google Classroom and engage "live" with all of their teachers. I have sent an email to introduce myself further and called many of you. I look forward to working with you all over this unconventional year to get the most out of it.
I knew I had a passion for teaching from a very young age. The opportunity to help students is inspiring. I began my educational carreer at Monmouth University and graduated in 4 years, passing the Praxis Test for High School History, Middle School History, and Elementary K-6 on my first attempt. Upon graduating I immediately entered the Master of Education with a concentration in Curriculum Studies. As I was pursuiung my first Masters Degree I began a School and Camp Theatre program in Long Branch. Still having questions on the best way to deliever individual instruction I enrolled in a Teacher of Students with Disabilities program.
It is an abosloute pleasure to have your children in my class. If you ever need to reach me, for any reason, my email is the best way. Please feel free to email me anytime at JOHNGORDON@paps.net

I have also taken the liberty to create a Google Classroom for all of our Parents. Information may come slightly behind here because it has to approved by our building administration, which is unfortunate; however, it will give me more time to plan for approprate instruction. As our situation is changing rapidly. I will also attempt to get a hold of every Parent by the end of the week.
Very Warmly Yours,
John Gordon, M.Ed
