Mrs. Maureen Rossi
Mrs. Rossi is the sixth grade homeroom, social studies, and religion teacher. In addition, she teaches fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh grade math. She loves teaching at St. John the Evangelist School!
Mrs. Rossi is a native New Yorker born and reared in Queens to a family of educators. Both her parents were English teachers so, naturally, she loves to read. She has many books she likes, but her favorite is “Angle of Repose” by Wallace Stegner.
Her husband and she have three children. Their eldest daughter is a college senior, their son is a college sophomore, and their youngest daughter is a high school junior. Since her son plays college soccer, any team on which he plays is her favorite team. Their family team is Arsenal. Both her husband and she LOVE the Cubs (long story!). In addition to watching soccer, she also enjoys running. Every May she runs in a relay “race” from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to the Washington D.C. waterfront.
Over the summer when Mrs. Rossi is not in school, she enjoys going to the east end of Long Island where she went each summer growing up. It is the central meeting place where her extended family from near and far meets and reconnects. After recharging there, she is ready to return to SJE each fall.
The sixth grade curriculum is based on the Archdiocese of Washington Academic Standards.
