Hi! My name is Angela Rorick. I teach second grade at Fisher Elementary School. I have been with Ilion and Central Valley School districts for 16 years.
What do you like best about what you do?
I love interacting with students, learning about their likes and dislikes as well as seeing them engaged and excited when they learn something new.
What former jobs have you held?
During college, I worked at a summer training program for at risk youth. I was also a language arts specialist in Boston Public Schools.
Where were you educated?
I received my Bachelor’s degree from SUNY Postdam and my Master’s degree from Boston College.
Where have you lived?
I have lived in Deerfield, Postdam, Boston, and I currently live in Clinton with my husband and son Cooper.
If you could do anything on a weekend, what would you do?
I like to go on day trips with my husband and Cooper.
What book and/or author are you currently reading?

If we were to listen to your iPod or sound system, what would be playing?
I am a huge U2 fan. I also like Dave Matthews Band and Justin Timberlake.
What is your favorite television show/movie/actor?
I like watching The Big Bang Theory, The Good Wife, and The Amazing Race.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I would like to travel to Italy to see where my ancestors came from, attend a Papal Mass at the Vatican and visit the Sistine Chapel.
What one thing would you share that people might not know about you?
Since I was 16, I have volunteered at a water station for the Boilermaker and I always wanted to give it a try. When I turned 30, I started training and am proud to say that I finished the Bolkermaker 15K. Now I am back to handing out water with lots of enthusiasm!
