Ms. Rozanski has 10 years of teaching experience, and for the past 6 years, she has taught music and social studies to middle school students in Germany. Prior to joining DoDEA, Ms. Rozanski taught at Emerald Hills Elementary School in Bonney Lake, Wash. She is a graduate of the University of Washington with a bachelor's degree in Music Education and Vocal Performance and she received her Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass. She has also earned her National Board Certificate in Early/Middle Childhood Music.

Using her experience as a military child and identifying with her students' experiences of moving to new duty stations, desiring to "fit in" to a new school, and living in a foreign country, Ms. Rozanski brings music as a constant element to children's lives. "Music has been the constant in my own life," she said, "and my students deserve this same opportunity, for, as General Norman H. Schwartzkopf said, 'what a tragedy it would be if we lived in a world where music was not taught to children.'"
