Dr. Rose came to Gladwyne Montessori in October 2015. She had retired from a 32 year career in public education - 10 years as a classroom teacher and 22 years as a literacy specialist. She has also taught at a number of universities and has been a national speaker in the area of literacy. After a brief hiatus, Dr. Rose wanted to work with children again which is her greatest passion. Dr. Rose has a love of animals and, besides having four dogs of her own, she volunteers at the Francisvale Home for Smaller Animals in Radnor.
