Welcome to Mrs. Rose's Garden!

    Mae Woodard Rose was born, raised, and educated in Northampton County, NC, the oldest of three. She holds a B. S. in early childhood education and Pre-Kindergarten add-on licensure from East Carolina University. She was awarded the opportunity to be a member of Cohort I of the Northeast Leadership Academy through grants at North Carolina State University where she obtained her Masters in School Administration. 


    Mrs. Rose has been empowering students to learn since 1993. Her journey into the field of education came from a desire to make a difference in people's lives. She ventured down other career paths and now feels she has truly found that her passion lies in the classroom. During her tenure in education she has taught pre-kindergarten, middle school 6-8, including: physical education, AIG, reading remediation, and math. Four years were spent in administration; one year internship at a 4-6 elementary school and three years as an assistant principal at the high school level. This is her second year as a first grade teacher at Gatesville Elementary School. IT'S GREAT TO BE A DRAGON! 


    She and her husband, Mike Rose, reside in Murfreesboro, NC. She has many former students, parents, and colleagues that call her "Mama Rose" and through her years in education she has nurtured many and these have developed into lifelong relationships. She enjoys watching football, traveling, gardening, and spending time with family and friends. Her "happy places" are at her family's homeplace romping through the fields and woods and or being near the water.
