Professional Learning Facilitator
Rosemary McGeehin recently retired from teaching after 37 years in education. Rosemary spent the first 20 years of her career teaching elementary and secondary students in the Ridley & West Chester School Districts. Following those years teaching in the classroom, Rosemary became one of the first educators selected to serve as a teacher coach in the West Chester Area School District. Her role started as a Math Coach serving multiple schools, and later transitioned to an Instructional Coach working with teachers in one building. In her role as an Instructional Coach Rosemary provided instructional support & educational resources to building and district staff. Rosemary also served as her building’s Schoolwide Positive Behavior & Supports Coach for 6 years and led her school to statewide recognition at the advanced tier level.
The famous quote by W.B. Yeats, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire,” captures Rosemary’s philosophy of teaching. Whether teaching in the classroom or teaching fellow educators, Rosemary strives to create a learning environment that is collaborative, motivating, and innovative. Rosemary brings this same passion to her endeavors outside of the classroom. Rosemary lives in West Chester and enjoys spending time outdoors golfing, gardening, and puppy raising golden retriever pups.
