East High Upper SchoolWelcome toMs. Casarett's ENL/ELA Site
As of June 25, 2022, I have retired from the Rochester City School District. It was an honor, a privilege, and an education to work with this district and with my previous school, Monroe #1 BOCES, for over 26 years. As one teaches, one learns; I learned so much from experienced and collaborative colleagues, talented students, and the challenges of changes in educational policy.
It is gratifying that many people from around the world viewed this website and found value in it. Your feedback and suggestions led to steady improvements. I hope the RCSD will continue to publish this site, so that its various resources, including the direct translation glossaries, will be readily available to future learners.
All the best,
Vicki CasarettWords of Wisdom:
