Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Dee Arose and I have been teaching at Curtis Fundamental since 2006. I have taught fourth, fifth and second grades. Prior to 2006, I substituted in Pinellas County for 9 years. I did many long-term assignments in fourth grade because I was known for being able to teach writing.
I received my bachelor’s degree from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. I worked there for 15 years for the Federal Government. My last position was with the Administrative Office of the Federal Courts. I was an Administrative Analyst who traveled to courts to assist the Chief Judge and Clerk of Court in implementing technology and streamlined procedures.
I grew up in West Virginia prior to moving to Washington, DC. I currently live in Palm Harbor. I have three grown children; two daughters and a son, and two dogs. I spend my spare time with my children, dogs, going to the beach, reading, and crafting. I enjoy teaching and helping my students to become independent thinkers, accept responsibility, and learn good study habits. I also enjoy the bonds I have created with my students.
