CONTACT ROSEANNE >>
Roseanne Rostock began her career teaching high school physics in the Boston Public Schools, and also coordinated her school's chapter of the Massachusetts Pre-Engineering Program, an after-school engineering club. She later taught math and physics at a small charter high school in Philadelphia, where she developed the physics curriculum, introduced a physics-first model for 9th grade and developed a math SAT-prep program. At both schools, Roseanne served in various roles as a school-wide teacher leader around issues of instruction and school restructuring.
As a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines, Roseanne drew on her classroom and leadership experience as teacher developer for science and English teachers from six high schools and 23 elementary schools in Naga City. During her service she focused on supporting teachers to improve their content knowledge and develop critical thinking in students.
Roseanne is currently a doctoral student in Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education at the University of Pennsylvania. She was born in Pennsylvania and currently lives in Philadelphia.
