Clori Rose, an AP Language, Journalism, and 10th Literature and Composition instructor, is departing from Lambert High School after two years of teaching at the school.

When asked to describe her overall experience whilst teaching at Lambert High School, Rose responded with, “Lambert contains some of the most gifted and talented students I have ever had the pleasure to work with.  The caliber of thought and ability at all levels truly amazes me.  The students here are simply phenomenal, and I love every young person I have taught here.” Rose also takes pride in the Journalism program she has developed during her two years at Lambert: “Transforming the Lambert Post into a viable online news site has certainly been a personal blessing.”

Looking back at some of her favorite memories whilst working at Lambert, Rose recalls the “pop-up museums” that she had put together for AP Language: “They were so amazing and inspiring, and I was super excited by the work my AP students created.” Referring to Journalism, Rose admits, “I can’t forget my entire experience as the Lambert Post’s adviser. We really have done such great work together and I will miss it. I have learned so much from my 10th Lit and Comp students,” Rose says, “They have challenged me to enliven the subject matter, the raise the bar, and to challenge them towards their best.” Rose confirms that “the students are [her] favorite memories.”

Rose worked in Atlanta Public Schools for five years before coming to Forsyth County Schools, where she has now taught for 12 years.  Before coming to Lambert, she taught at North Forsyth High School for ten years. While in APS, she won teacher of the year at her school.  While at North, she won the Georgia Scholastic Press Association (GSPA) first year adviser award.  While at Lambert, she won the GSPA turnaround award.

So what does the future look like for Rose?  She will be teaching 11th grade American literature at South Forsyth High School next year.  She mentions that she will “continue to be a supporter and a mother to [her] daughter who will be in 4th grade next year.”  Rose also hopes to begin her PhD in the next year.

Leaving knowledgable advice, Rose tells hers students to “keep the excellence alive and never stop writing.”  In regards to Journalism, Rose states, “We have worked to make the Lambert Post something special.  With hard work, it really can become the best online news site in the South East.”
