JOE RIDOLFO

I studied to become a teacher at Southeastern Louisiana College in Hammond. While there I was elected Parliamentarian and then President of the Student Louisiana Teachers' Association on campus and served as State Parliamentarian in the State Student Louisiana Teachers' Association.

Having graduated from Southeastern Louisiana College in Education with a major in English/Speech and a minor in Biology in 1965, I began my academic career, teaching English and Speech at Behrman Senior High School for 6 years.

With a teaching assistant position, I began working on my graduate degree. After receiving an MA degree in Theatre Direction from the University of New Orleans, I became the Artistic Director of The Town Theatre in Columbia, South Carolina from 1973-1976.

When I returned to New Orleans, I taught English and Speech, was chairman of the English department and supervised student teachers at Gregory Junior High School.

While in that position, I worked on my doctorate degree in Educational Administration from Peabody College in Nashville, Tennessee with a summer residency on that campus.

Then I served as an assistant principal at Livingston Middle School for 6 years.

Ultimately, I retired after 14 years as principal of Benjamin Banneker Elementary School (formerly McDonogh No. 24 Elementary School) in New Orleans.
