Karen Rose

Deckhand Educator

Hometown: Annapolis, Maryland

School: Randolph College

Previous teaching experience: After college, I spent three years teaching English to kids in South Korea, ranging from kindergarten all the way up to early high school. It was a great learning experience for me as well as the kids, and I found that everything—the students, the culture, the food—fully surpassed my expectations.  

Hobbies: travel, photography, running, singing, reading, theater, drawing

Why I’m excited to work for World Ocean School: I can't wait to learn everything Roseway can teach me about sailing! I grew up in a very nautical town, but it wasn’t until I moved away that I really got interested in life on the water. I look forward to beginning this new adventure and the opportunity to bring my teaching skills outside of a traditional classroom and into such a dynamic new setting.
