Rosanna María Salcedo
Rosanna María Salcedo is an educator, consultant, and coach. A first-generation Latina, born and raised in Washington Heights, New York City, she has spent most of her adult life living and working as an educator in New England. In her personal and professional life, Rosanna is inspired to help others reach their highest potential. She believes this is possible if one approaches living life as a journey of self-discovery and growth, with humility and an openness to change. She applies this philosophy to every aspect of her personal and professional life.
Rosanna is also a writer, storyteller, and visual artist, whose artistic expression is a reflection of her journey as a woman, daughter of Dominican immigrants, and mother of two children. She has published personal essays about her experiences as a first-generation American, performed for the World Channel's, Stories From the Stage, and enjoys telling stories about how her personal and educational journeys have shaped her as a human being.
For over 20 years, Rosanna has worked in both public and private schools, as a teacher and school administrator committed to creating healthy and inclusive communities where all students can thrive socially, emotionally, and academically. Her own educational journey attending schools and growing up in an immigrant community inspired a passion for education and social justice that continues today. She is most interested in using her education, and personal and professional experiences to create more access and equity in institutions, by helping leaders think strategically about their diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging goals.

She uses her twenty plus years of teaching and leadership experience to help others grow in their personal and professional development by serving as a thought partner, strategic advisor, or accountability coach, to achieve their goals.
