Hi! My name is Ms. Rosie, and I'm so glad you're here.
I'm a licensed elementary teacher from Colorado, USA. I moved to Taiwan in 2018 to start my teaching career abroad, because I was disheartened by the state of the education system in the United States.
While I loved teaching in an international school in Taiwan, I soon realized that the problems I'd seen back home were deeply embedded in schools around the world--not just in my own backyard.
I saw that the biggest issues threatening future generations were not the fault of one system, but the result of a collective mindset. So in order to really make a change, we would have to make the choice to rethink everything we know about education.
I'm still in Taiwan, but I've now left the full-time classroom life, and am teaching extracurriculars in a local elementary school. This is my attempt to spark some joy and curiosity in my students that they may not find during the regular school day.
And I'm making it my mission to reinvent the way I think about education, so that I can build a foundation on what's really important; not grades and college applications, but getting to the root of what it means to be a human being in this world.
I hope you'll join me, and I can't wait to learn something new with you!
