Roslyn Sotero


Director of Community Schools

As the Director of Community Schools, Roslyn Sotero builds partner capacity to sustain equitable change. With over a decade of experience as an anti-racist educator, Roslyn spearheads several partnerships with Waterbury Public Schools (WPS) through professional development, technical assistance, and management of school-based partnerships that support the success and well-being of all students, families and the Waterbury community.

Roslyn is a trained, passionate results-based facilitator with a demonstrated commitment to equity and anti-racism. Her work emphasizes the link between personal development and professional practice, particularly as it concerns the dismantling of whiteness and pursuit of equity in public education. As an active member of the WPS District Equity Leadership Team (DELT), Roslyn develops original training curricula that builds teachers’ capacity to critically assess and improve their practices in alignment with racial equity and justice. It is in these learning spaces where educators are invited to interrogate their assumptions about race and integrate a historical analysis that moves them from passive participants in systems of inequity to active change agents confident in their role and ability to reimagine public education.

Roslyn holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Connecticut. She is a certified Affiliate Practitioner of Courageous Conversations as created and founded by Glenn E. Singleton’s Pacific Educational Group.
