Virdell Robbins (2011-2015)
Board Member Virdell Tedder was born in Durham, North Carolina and lived there until she finished graduate school. After receiving her master’s degree, she moved with her husband, Charles Robbins Jr., to Dahlgren, Virginia, where they lived for several years. Then Virdell moved with her husband and first two children, Kim Marie and Rita Denise, to the Rochester area where Charles was employed as a research engineer with Eastman Kodak Company. After moving to the Rochester area, Virdell and Charles had another daughter, Toni Jaye. In September of 1966 Virdell moved with her family to her present home in Henrietta, New York. After moving to Henrietta, their son, Charles III, was born. When Kim was ten years old, Virdell began teaching French as a permanent substitute at the Rush-Henrietta High School. In 1976 Virdell began teaching in the City School District of Rochester, New York. She taught reading, English, and French at Monroe High School where she worked for eleven years. While at Monroe and as part of a high school foreign exchange program, Virdell took twelve students who were studying French at Monroe High School and East High School to Paris, France and Rennes, France. She is presently an English teacher in the Rochester City Schools. Virdell received a Bachelor of Arts in French and dramatic arts from North Carolina Central University (NCC) in Durham, North Carolina in 1961 and a Master of Arts in French and English in 1962. She completed the Cours d’ete at the Universite Laval in Quebec, Canada in 1961. After moving to Henrietta, Virdell completed the Master of Science program in reading at Nazareth College in Rochester, New York. Virdell Tedder Robbins is permanently certified to teach in New York State in four fields: French, English, speech, and reading. Virdell does volunteer work throughout the Rochester community.
