I have taught in Alabama, Texas, Nevada, and New Mexico.  My 23 years of experience has been at the elementary level in both general education and special education.  Maryvale has been my home for the past 16 years!


Hi, I am Rose Lathem.  I have been married to my best friend, Walter, for 31 years.  We have two daughters, Melissa and Paige.  Melissa is a music teacher and Paige is in her second year of college.  As a family we enjoy camping, sports, and music.  Before settling in the Mobile area, we lived in Texas, Nevada, and New Mexico. My husband's job kept us on the move.  This gave me an opportunity to work in a variety of schools with diverse student populations. Each new experience was a challenge and a joy.  Thankfully, I have been a part of the Maryvale family for 16 years.  It is a blessing to be able to touch the lives of children!  I could not imagine doing anything else!
