Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. Rose's Second Grade page! I am excited to be your second grade teacher! This is my seventh year teaching at Nathan Hale Elementary School. This is my first year in second grade! I taught fourth grade for six years!
I am so grateful to have, what I believe as, the best job in the world. I have worked with all age levels and I love coming to work each day. I am excited to work with you and get to know each and every one of you better.
I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology for Accessories Design and Fabric Styling, where I discovered that fashion and sewing were interests and not my passion. After graduating, I pursued my passion for teaching through obtaining my Early Childhood and Elementary School certificates at Kean University. I currenlty am enrolled in Grand Canyon University for Educational Leadership. I believe a part of me has always known that I wanted to be a teacher. As I went through my academic career I looked back on the values that were instilled in me as a kid by my elementary school teacher. Once I realized the impact that one person had had on me and that fashion wasn't my heart, everything clicked. I believe in the future of all students and I also believe that children are our future. I became a teacher in hopes of affecting students the way I was affected when I was young. Providing them with more then just knowledge but a basis and a respect for learning and growth and curiosity that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. I hope to do so and I can't wait to work with each and every one of you!
