“The thing that matters most to me is that I come up with a class that rewards people for their curiosity,” said Rosin, who has taught at Radnor High School for 13 years. “I want kids to understand how the world is an interesting place and that means I have to be continually taking my cues from them to make sure that I’m coming up with stuff that is not only important but also engaging.”
Rosin joins 18 other award-winning teachers from Delaware County’s 14 other school districts, the DCIU, and three non-public educators. He received a $500 cash award, a commemorative keepsake, and $1,000 to benefit Radnor High School at an April 19 ceremony.
Rosin does not know which of his students nominated him, but believes he or she was in a past philosophy class and is now either a senior in college or has already graduated. He learned of his award from RHS principal Mark Schellenger while reviewing vocabulary during his 6th-period class. His students applauded upon hearing the news.
