The Bronx is losing a long-time educator. Roseann Carotenuto, most recently a regional superintendent for the Archdiocese of New York, has retired after a 42-year career in Bronx Catholic schools. Carotenuto's love for education goes back to when she was a kid, she said, when she would rather read or play 'school' than play with dolls.

"I always knew I was going to teach," said Carotenuto. Carotenuto began her career teaching third grade at St. Frances de Chantal in 1974. In 1986, after getting a Masters in Guidance and Counseling, she taught fifth grade and counseled at Villa Maria Academy before transitioning to counseling full time at the Academy of Mt. St. Ursula in 1989.
