District names bilingual-education director

ROCHESTER — Anaida González-Fortiche, who served last year as assistant principal at Lincoln School No. 22, has been named the Rochester City School District’s director of bilingual education.

González-Fortiche has worked in several teaching and administrative positions in the district since 1993 — except for one year as a primary teacher at the Quest Elementary School in Hilton in 2005. In the Rochester district, she has been an elementary bilingual-education teacher, a bilingual specialist and intervention coach, and assistant director of the Department of English Language Learners.

González-Fortiche was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, and moved with her family to Buffalo at age 6. She replaces David Polonia, who served as acting bilingual-education director last year. Polonia is now assistant principal at the Rochester STEM High School on the campus of the former Edison Tech High School.
