Dr. Rosie Branciforte

Visiting Professor

My Background

I earned my BA from the College of Mount Saint Vincent in Riverdale, New York, with a double major in English Literature and Elementary Education; then I continued on to the University of Bridgeport for my Masters in Education with a specialization in Remedial Reading. And, in May 2011, I completed my Doctor of Education degree (E.D.D. in Curriculum & Instruction with a specialization in English Composition).

Valencia College - 2021

For the Fall 2021 semester I will be teaching ENC0027 and ENC1101 at the West campus.

My Teaching Philosophy

Education, as well as my philosophy of teaching and learning, is not accomplished by individual effort; rather it is a group dynamic driven by invention, interaction, questioning, sharing and discovery, realized by “re-vision”.

Personal Interests and Hobbies

After my teaching responsibilities, what is left of me and my time, I unselfishly give to my significant other, my two Italian Greyhounds (Angelina {Angie} and Josafina {Jojo}), mindless comedy movies, reading, gardening, and beachcombing in Ormond Beach, Florida. I may be busy and extremely time challenged but I believe that what does not kill me will make me stronger. And, as E.E. Cummings noted, “then laugh, leaning back in my arms, since life is not a paragraph and death is no parentheses.”
