Event Description:
At the age of 13, Gilda Rorro Baldassari and her family, had a private audience with Pope Pius XII. At that meeting she promised the Pope she would learn to speak Italian. She kept her promise and says that it has changed and inspired her throughout her life. Dr. Rorro Baldassari became a specialist in applied linguistics, bilingual/multicultural education, ESL, and urban education, and over the years has lectured at several universities. She was the Director of the Office of Equal Educational Opportunity (Civil Rights Office) at the New Jersey Department of Education, and the Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources at the Trenton School District. Dr. Rorro Baldassari also served as Honorary Vice Consul for Italy in Trenton, for 20 years, before retiring in 2018.

Dr. Rorro Baldassari will speak about her life in education, her ancestry, and her faith, as published recently in "Gilda, Promise Me." She will also be available to sign her book which will be available for purchase.
