About the Principal
With over 20 years of educational leadership in the West-Windsor-Plainsboro School District, Mrs. Citro has been responsible for building instructional programs and a school culture that empowers all learners to thoughtfully contribute to a diverse and changing world. Mrs. Citro values her collaborative work with the administrative team on the creation and implementation of three strategic goals for the district: meeting the diverse needs of all learners, engaging students in global awareness and involvement, and meeting the social and emotional needs of all learners. Mrs. Citro is proudest of her accomplishments in creating new safety procedures, which enabled her to oversee the safety of over 1100 students in her building, and in creating a school culture of trust. In addition to her primary job responsibilities, Mrs. Citro has also worked closely with Rutgers University, The College of New Jersey, and Rider University, where she has been part of the Rider University Advisory Board and has been the keynote speaker for their Accepted Students Day.
Mrs. Roseann Citro has most recently served as an elementary school principal in the West Windsor-Plainsboro School District, which has been home to her for the past 21 years. Here, she also served as a high school principal, a middle school ESL/bilingual teacher, and a high school Spanish teacher. Mrs. Citro has completed her Bachelor’s Degree from Douglass College, Rutgers University and her Master of Education from The College of New Jersey. She has her principal and supervisor certificates as well as a certification for Teacher of Bilingual/Bicultural Education, English as a Second Language, Spanish (Secondary Education) and Elementary Education (K-8).
In her spiritual life, Mrs. Citro has been involved in her church community through the ministry of liturgical music, where she served as a lead cantor for many years. On weekends, Mr. and Mrs. Citro enjoy spending time with one another, and with their four children, which keeps them constantly on the go! She also enjoys running, exercising, baking, and going to the beach as relaxation activities.
Mrs. Citro is a passionate educator who truly believes in meeting the needs of the “whole child, every child” and in supporting all teachers and staff members as they work in service of their students. She is thrilled to be joining the OLC family and looks forward to sharing her wealth of educational experience, her spiritual life and her energy and enthusiasm in a community of faith and learning.
