About Ms. Retrosi

Rainbow Banner.png

My name is Cecile Retrosi and I have been a teacher in the Canastota Central School District since 1997. During my time here, I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. I absolutely love teaching elementary school and have enjoyed teaching fifth grade for two years (with a break to teach 4th grade last year)!

I graduated from Hamilton Central School in 1989 and went to SUNY Potsdam to pursue my dream of becoming an elementary teacher. I graduated in 1993 with a dual major in writing and elementary education. I received my Master's Degree in Reading from SUNY Cortland in 1999 while teaching full time and becoming a mother.
I have three amazing boys and they have gone or are going through the Canastota school system. Joey graduated in 2016 and is attending SUNY Morrisville. My younger two are still here in high school - Michael is a senior this year and Matthew is a freshman. Time has certainly flown by. I can still remember watching all three of my boys graduate from kindergarten, sitting up on the stage in the auditorium at Roberts Street. I am thoroughly enjoying my time with them while they’re around!

When I am not busy teaching, I enjoy reading, gardening, shopping, and spending time with family and friends. I am registered for a 70.3 Triathlon during the summer of 2018, so I will be busy trying to fit in training for that as well!
