Simply put, Romona brings the sunshine to everything she does! Her classroom hums with a great combo of her Michigan teaching chops and the easy vibe of beaches of Wildwood, NJ (her top summer spot). In the spring of 2016 and 2017 she was part of the Winchendon contingent volunteering with Forward in Health in the Les Cayes region of Haiti. Winchendon’s ColLABs have her so invigorated that when asked which ColLAB she would like to take, Romona responded, “Athletic Training, Caligraphy, Art, Tech and Design, or Entrepreneurship and Business – all of them!”
On the bucket list: I would love to have a family reunion with every single person present.
Song to start the day: Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror”
Superpower of choice: I would pick fly right now because it represents how I feel about life right now. I love being on the cutting edge of something new in education. 36 years in a traditional education system, this ColLAB experience makes me think of the ability to fly with the students.
Go-to comfort food: I love collard greens. I make a pot at least three to four times a month
