My undergraduate degree is from Radford University and my master degree is from Mary Washington University. I enjoy gardening, boating, and riding our motorcycle.

My name is Bridget Rose and this is my third year teaching first grade at Enterprise! I earned my undergraduate degree from Radford University in 2018 and am currently enrolled in Radford's Graduate Program where I am pursuing a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
