A longtime teacher and coach in Northern Westchester has died.

Vincent Minotti died on Sunday, Nov. 14, at his home in Orleans, Massachusetts, surrounded by his family. 

He was born on Sept. 28, 1940, in Bedford Hills. He attended St. Mary’s High School in Katonah and later attended Springfield College in Massachusetts majoring in physical education.

He earned his graduate degree at Teachers College Columbia University in New York City. 

He followed his passion and became a dynamic physical education teacher and coach. He taught in the Bedford Central School District from 1963 to 1996. 

" He was well-loved by his colleagues and students," according to his obituary. "He always treated people with respect and dignity. His quiet manner and wry sense of humor left an impact on all those who had the privilege of knowing him. He mastered teamwork and fair competition in his classroom and on the teams he coached."

He is survived by his wife of 41 years Anne (Wight) Minotti and the children from their blended family: Denise (Minotti) Kness (Matt), Vincent J. Minotti (Lorraine), Robin (Bush) Thayer (Todd) David Bush (Janine) and his eight grandchildren: Brenden Thayer, Matthew Kness, Alaina Bush, Emily Kness, Caroline Thayer, Derek Bush, Katherine Minotti, and James Minotti. 

He also leaves behind his twin brothers George Minotti and Louis Minotti (Patricia) and his cousin Anita Mele along with niece Cheryl Minotti and nephew Michael Minotti (Melissa).

A private graveside ceremony was held at St. Francis Cemetery in Mount Kisco.

"The family would like to thank his home care aides and the staff and doctors at Dana Faber Cancer Center and the Cape Cod Hospital Cancer Center," according to his obituary. "For those inclined to make a donation in his honor please consider the Dana Faber Cancer Center or Springfield College Athletic Department."

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.

New Mexico turns to National Guard to fill substitute teacher shortage

The state of New Mexico is turning to the National Guard to fill in as substitute teachers in public schools amid a nationwide teacher shortage and coronavirus-related quarantines.

Close to 100 National Guard troops will be deployed to work as substitute teachers in the state’s public schools in a bid to stave off remote instruction due to staff shortages.

The troops being deployed are all volunteers, reported Wednesday, and are required to undergo the same vetting process, including background checks, that regular substitute teachers undergo.


The use of National Guard troops as substitute teachers is part of an initiative by New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham to address teacher shortages in the state. The governor herself worked as a substitute kindergarten teacher this week.

In a press release last week, the governor touted the plan as essential to keeping children in school, saying “the state stands ready to help keep kids in the classroom, parents able to go to work and teachers able to fully focus on the critical work they do every single day in educating the next generation.”

More than a third of the state’s 146 school districts have switched to remote instruction, reported. The governor’s press release said the remote classes were due to staffing shortages.

“Currently, many schools are being forced to shift to online learning and child care facilities are being forced to temporarily close when staff members test positive for COVID-19 or are identified as close contacts and must isolate or quarantine for 5 days,” the press release said. “The goal of the state’s effort is to ensure these establishments have the staffing resources to temporarily fill in during these gaps.”


The omicron wave of the coronavirus has exacerbated a nationwide shortage of teachers as already short-staffed schools have had to grapple with infected teachers forced to quarantine, leaving schools with no replacement teachers.
