Mr. Rosenberg grew up in the small town of la Honda, over the mountain from the San Francisco Peninsula. He attended Woodside High School and the University of California at Santa Cruz. During his junior year he was accepted to the UCDC program in Washington, DC, where he completed independent research related to juvenile justice while working as an intern in Amnesty International’s National Field Program. Although his college majors were Political Science and the Law, he chose English as his area of expertise when he sought his teaching credential. Mr. Rosenberg has worked for the Mid-peninsula Regional Open Space District, a non-profit agency that preserves land from development, for the Jewish Community Center of Oakland, and in Oakland for independent tutoring agencies and as a teaching assistant at Brett Hart and Joaquin Miller middle schools. Long term substitute teaching for Sequoia Unified School District in San Mateo County allowed him exposure to a tremendously heterogeneous mix of talents and abilities which ultimately led to his decision to work with a high school age student population. He is happy to be part of the OSA teaching staff and community.
