Rona Rothhouse recently retired after teaching English and theater for 33 years. She was president of the Connecticut Drama Association for four years. "Leaving teaching was one of the most difficult things I have ever done," said Ms. Rothhouse. "For a large portion of my life, teaching is how I defined myself." Presently, Ms. Rothhouse is an education consultant and she has developed two professional development programs - one for new teachers and one to "energize" and excite veterans. Formerly an English and theater teacher at Bethel High School in Bethel, Ms. Rothhouse still believes that "education is an act of the heart as well as of the mind."
