Mrs. Marsico says Au Revoir to EHHS after 33 years

Mrs.+Marsico+says+Au+Revoir+to+EHHS+after+33+years

Mrs. Carla Marsico, the World Language Team Leader, is retiring after 33 years of teaching. Mrs. Marsico teaches both French classes and Spanish classes for EHHS, being the only French teacher in the building. She plans on watching her grandchildren after her early retirement, and relaxing after her hard working job as an amazing teacher here in EHHS.

Mrs. Marsico started her career in New Haven schools shortly after the birth of her son. She switched to East Haven schools 5 years after working in New Haven so that she could teach in the same district her son was attending. Recently there has been a new addition to her family-her grandchildren-which is the reason for her early retirement. She is planning on watching her “grandbabies” during the day to help her children, while they work. This is one of the main reasons she has decided to retire.

Here in EHHS she teaches 2 languages, Spanish and French, she is one of many Spanish teachers, but the only French teacher in the building. The French teacher coming to EHHS next year is unknown, with a possibility of no French class being available next year. Mrs. Marsico speaks about the difficulty of teaching multiple languages during a school year. She says “Sometimes it can get confusing and I use the wrong language, but then I catch myself and make corrections.”

Mrs.Marsico is sad to leave her community behind, but is excited for all of the things she can accomplish outside of her job. She says “It is bittersweet. I am excited to be home, but I will miss my colleagues, especially my WL department.” Mrs. Marisco is also sad to leave her students as the year comes to an end. “I love making a difference in my community 1 kid at a time. I have taught a ton of kids during my career. Hopefully, my influence has made East Haven a better place.”Her favorite part of her job is making a difference in our community, but her least favorite, she says, is ‘paperwork!!’.

She has always stayed loyal to our school and expresses how she has never wanted to switch districts, she has made an impact on EHHS forever and is always welcome in our community. The students she has inspired, taught, and welcomed in our school over the years are astounding! We all wish her good luck and hope for the best for her and her family in her retirement years.
