ABOUT SHARON ROZZI
Sharon Rozzi is a beloved fifth grade teacher at East Boston Central Catholic School (EBCCS). Both her children attended Catholic schools and followed in her footsteps to become teachers. Her daughter now serves as the first-grade teacher at EBCCS.
Rozzi has a gift for making children enjoy being in school every day. She has a knack for reaching every student, from the most advanced to the one who struggles most. Her love for them is evident in the way she will arrive early in the morning, give up her lunch, and stay after school to help her students.
Along with her duties as a classroom teacher, Rozzi has taken on many other challenges at EBCCS. She is the Level Chairperson for grades 4-8 and the NWEA Map Testing Coordinator for her school. Rozzi is also a member of the Administrative Council who determine the policies and procedures at the school. Her commitment to her faith is evidenced through daily prayer in the classroom and her role as Liturgical Committee Chairperson.
Rozzi is also a devoted member of the Sacred Heart Parish in East Boston where she attends Mass weekly. She serves as their Religious Education Director and as a Eucharistic Minister. Rozzi has devoted countless hours to the sacramental preparation of her students and serves as the Protecting God’s Children Coordinator. Both at EBSSC and at Sacred Heart Parish, she has been responsible for VIRTUS training of volunteers and staff. As summarized by Robert Casaletto, principal at EBCCS, “Her commitment to her students, her faith, her family, and our school are unmatched.”
