Rosie grew up in a small rural community called Pahiatua in the North Island of New Zealand. After high school, she moved to Christchurch in the South Island to attend University where she studied to be a teacher. She later returned home where she taught in a range of different schools in varying age groups from Reception to Year 8.
Always having a desire to travel, Rosie decided it was time to teach aboard and see what the world outside little New Zealand had to offer. She accepted a job in China at Dulwich College Suzhou where she has taught Year 2 and English Language Learners across Key Stage 1 and 2. She has a real love of developing a love of language in children and seeing them grow into independent learners.
Outside of school life, you will find Rosie out running, enjoying a yoga class or having a coffee in the sun. She also loves many sports from hockey, cricket and rugby especially supporting the All Blacks. She spent many years playing competitively and coaching sport while in New Zealand. She also loves art, music and more recently enjoys photographing and writing about her travel experiences.
