Rose Minichiello grew up in a small northern Connecticut town. In high school, after having a few excellent teachers, she decided she wanted to go into education. Rose began college in Scotland before starting at Mount Holyoke in 2013 as a spring admit. Music is one of her favorite subjects, and throughout college she played in the Amherst College jazz band on baritone saxophone. As a junior she joined the Mount Holyoke squash team, where she was able to get better at this mysterious sport and meet many fantastic people. Other than the arts, Rose likes to spend time outside and bike riding with her parents. She completed her M.A.T. in Elementary Education in May 2017. She is currently a fifth grade teacher at the Nantucket Intermediate School in Nantucket, MA.
