A native of Brooklyn, NY, born and raised of Roman Catholic faith, Dr. Rosanna Gentile comes to Notre Dame High School with passion and heart to teach all classes in the Physical Education Department! Her previous roles were in the capacity of teaching at both Columbia Borough Junior/Senior High School and East Stroudsburg University. She partnered up with her husband in 2010 in creating the brand and seasonal business of Dr. Driveway Sealcoating Service Specialists. As sole owners and operators, summers are busy! Prior to those roles Dr. Gentile served nearly 9 years in the U.S. Army as a 31R and then Fitness Specialist before completing her contracts and receiving an Honorable Discharge in 2007.
Now moved and nestled into Lower Nazareth for years to come, Dr. Gentile is happily married with their two rambunctious Italian boys Giuseppe and Giovanni.

Her Ph.D. is in Education, specializing in Training and Performance Improvement.
