Josephine Patrone hails from Brooklyn (Bay Ridge), NY, but has lived in New Jersey for most of her adult life. Presently, she lives in Jersey City on the Hudson River where she has a view of her childhood neighborhood. Mrs. Patrone worked as a pediatric/newborn intensive care nurse at both St. Vincent (NYC), and St. Peter Hospital (New Brunswick). She spent many years at home raising her four daughters, and then returned to the job market with a new profession, first as a junior high school language arts teacher, and then to Roselle Catholic where she is beginning her 14th year. She is proud of her accomplishments in the science department, particularly the initiation of Health Pro - a pre-professional program for allied health field studies. Over the summer, Mrs. Patrone is expanding our education credits by taking a course in diagnostic (MRI / CT Scan) cross-sectional reading.
Mrs. Patrone loves the company of her close-knit family especially when traveling, seeing plays and visiting museums, and boating. In her leisure, she reads, loves word games, and is a great cook. This year, the Patrone family welcomed their first grandchild, who is the center of their universe. Mrs. Patrone loves her students at RC, and hopes that they recognize how important their success is to her.
