Rose Cornwell

Development Consultant and Teacher

From tracking the most endangered group of birds in the Amazon rainforest to engaging local children as a Bilingual Education and Community Outreach Ranger in Grand Teton National Park, Rosie (she/her) has a professional background in education, development, and conservation that informs her approach to teaching at Biocitizen. With a wide range of international nonprofit experience, Rosie most notably spent nearly a decade improving access to education across Burma (Myanmar) for children of all ages and backgrounds with a nonprofit called Build a School in Burma.

Rosie is excited to help children make meaningful connections with their natural environments as well as the human communities intertwined with these environments. By providing a comfortable space for children to explore and discover the abundance of their communities, Rosie hopes to empower children to become both experts on and advocates for their local natural spaces.

Curious about the overlap between social and natural science, Rosie graduated from Saint Louis University Madrid with an undergraduate degree in Political Science and a minor in International Business. Rosie plans on expanding her academic experience by completing a Masters of Conservation Biology at the University of Queensland in Australia next year.
