Secretary

Hello Everyone! My name is Janette Ortiz and I am the School Secretary. I have over 10 years with the DOE and have experience in pupil accounting, payroll, and procurement. I have lived in the Jackson Heights for over 20 years and I'm still loving it! I am nine of eleven children and enjoy spending time with my family, playing board games (yes, we still do that). Can't wait to meet all of you in person!

Paraprofessional

Hello everyone, my name is Benita Holland, I am originally from Brooklyn but reside in Queens since recently getting married. I am excited to join the P.S.398Q family as a Paraprofessional in Pre-K. I have received my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education from Borough of Manhattan Community College and my Bachelors degree in Studio Art from Brooklyn College. I have over 10 years experience in helping to educate young minds while providing a fun and safe environment. I have experience in painting, drawing, screen printing, photography, digital art and sculpture. I am very passionate about art and believe that children are able to open their imagination through creativity along with building their confidence, becoming strategic thinkers, developing patience and strengthening their fine motor skills. I look forward to creating with our young artists!
