Mr. Johnsteven Melfi
Math Teacher
Onondaga Central Jr./Sr. High School
Onondaga Central School District


Mr. Johnsteven Melfi is a teacher at Onondaga Central Jr./Sr. High School in the Onondaga Central School District (OCS). He teaches Algebra II/Trigonometry with honors and Geometry with honors. His teaching career began 18 years ago at Bishop Grimes, and he has been at OCS for the past 16 years.

What are some of the innovative ways Mr. Melfi integrates technology into his curriculum?
This is Mr. Melfi's second year flipping his classroom. He records all of his lessons using present.me. At the end of each video, students reply to a Google Form to help Mr. Melfi assess the students' level of understanding. This practice allows him to see how students are doing before each class and provides a starting point for classroom instruction. Mr. Melfi participated in the CNYRIC's online professional development class, Leveraging Technology for the Common Core Classroom. As a part of the course, he learned about Padlet, a collaborative tool for sharing sticky notes, files, and links. Now, after students watch his instructional videos, they share some HOT ("Higher Order Thinking")questions via Padlet, which allows everyone to write down their questions in one spot.  He also began using Google Classroom this year, which allows him to share his instructional videos, check for understanding forms, as well as post and collect assignments. According to Mr. Melfi, "The best thing about Google Classroom is that when students have questions they can post and other students or myself can answer." Mr. Melfi is a trailblazer at OCS Jr./Sr. High.  [more...]
