Miss Rose

Aloha Friends and Families!

It's another SPECTACULAR year at Ridgeview! I look forward to a great year of new adventures and challenges, growth for all, and a whole lot of fun! 

As a new Colorado resident, I am enjoying getting the feel of the culture at Ridgeview, in District 49, and in Colorado Springs! The vast difference in climate from my home of origin (Oahu, HI) is exciting and invigorating for both myself and my two young children. We are loving it!

I received my Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Hawaii –West Oahu and later returned to school in order to obtain my teaching credentials and a Masters in Special Education from the University of Phoenix- Kapolei Campus. I have been in the classroom for over ten years and every year it keeps getting better! 

My educational philosophy is a student-centered approach which focuses on building relationships and working as a team to define success for students according to their abilities and interests. My goal is to find a happy balance between addressing state standards, individual student goals, while also focusing on a high quality of life for each individual student.
