After more than four decades as an educator, Roselle Park High School Fine Arts teacher Nicholas Florio will be retiring in two months. The announcement was made at last night’s Board Of Education (BOE) meeting.
A lifelong resident of Roselle Park as well as an RPHS alumnus, Mr. Florio became a RPHS art teacher in 1976 after starting his teaching career at Roselle Catholic High School. Since then, he has worn many hats including that of volunteer firefighter, tennis coach, football coach, wrestling coach, RPTV director, yearbook advisor, set designer, visual images teacher, artist, just to name a few.
‘Flo’ – as he known throughout the high school – will have this retirement take effect February 1, 2016.
