Rose excelled academically during her time at UD. She was awarded the
Highest GPA honor at her AAP Convocation ceremony in 2017 and received
three major awards from the University when she graduated with her
bachelor’s degree in spring 2020: the Center for Secondary Education’s
Outstanding Student Teacher Award; the Eve Holst Clift Award, which is
given to a graduating history major for outstanding academic
performance; and the Alumni Undergraduate Award for History/Social
Studies Education, which is awarded for excellence in student teaching.
Rose began teaching 11th-grade American history at her alma mater,
Cape Henlopen High School, in August 2020. As a very recent college
graduate, however, she faced the same classroom-management challenge
that many young educators encounter when they begin their careers: How

students?Read the full story of our talented alumna Amanda Rose.
