Experience: Rose Heithoff (she/her/hers) joined the LearningWorks team in the fall of 2019 as the Office + Facilities Manager and transitioned to a substitute teacher role in LWAS in the spring of 2022. She received her B.A. from Bryn Mawr College, with a degree in English Literature and a minor in creative writing. Rose grew up in rural New Jersey, and briefly lived abroad in London and Edinburgh, Scotland, and left when she caught herself calling trash ‘rubbish.’ She moved to Portland, Maine, in January of 2014 on a whim and cannot think of one good reason to ever leave. Rose has interned at literary agencies and literary magazines such as OneStory in Brooklyn and Granta in London, and with The Telling Room in Portland. She also worked for Apple for three years with a focus on corporate community engagement and at Print: A Bookstore as a bookseller and Events Coordinator. Rose lives in Portland where she enjoys running, taking naps on days off, and being in complete denial about the overflowing stacks of books in every room. She has an exceptional love of dogs.
