Rocio Romero is a native speaker of Spanish who grew up in Mexico. She came to the United States in 1999 to pursue her studies in Computer Information Systems and Business Administration at Caldwell University.
Upon finishing her degree in 2003, Rocio worked for Oak Knoll School as a Computer Science and Spanish Teacher. While teaching at Oak Knoll, she was fascinated by the abilities that teachers had to shape and inspire students. She decided to continue exploring this calling by signing on at MBS in 2004 in the World Language Department.
After three years of teaching Spanish, the opportunity to become the MBS Registrar emerged, and Rocio did not hesitate to take it. Since then, she has become the primary logistical genius behind virtually every recurring function on the MBS campus that concerns students, teachers, academic records, room assignments, and the MBS master schedule. In her own words: “Creating the MBS master schedule is an immense jigsaw puzzle. While it is a real challenge to accommodate the needs and preferences of hundreds of people, all at once, the end product gives me a deep sense of satisfaction.”
Becoming Registrar at MBS also provided Rocio the opportunity to continue her passion for teaching. She has been teaching AP Spanish at MBS for the last 10 years.
