To honor the legacy of our beloved colleague, and with the support of the Estrella family, Fordham Prep will dedicate our Global Education Ecology Program to former science teacher, Mrs. Rosanna Estrella and is seeking gifts to fund this initiative.
In 2015, inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si, Rosanna decided to bring her students to places where they could put their faith and knowledge of science into practice through field research focused on ecological conservation. That spring Rosanna, along with Ms. Dempsey (Math) and Mrs. Martinez (Guidance), traveled to Costa Rica with a pioneering group of students. Rosanna’s vision and passion for the care of creation is a legacy we hope will impact generations of Prep students for years to come.
A special fund for the Rosanna Estrella Ecology Program will enable us to offer this program at an affordable cost to all families and provide financial aid for students who qualify. Learn more about the program and make a gift in Rosanna’s memory.
