Upon graduation, Rosario married and moved to Miami, Florida, where she was one of three Montessori teachers, at the elementary level, in the state of Florida.

Years later, and upon returning to Florida, she continued working in various Montessori schools as a teacher and trainer and as a school consultant and conference presenter for the American Montessori Society. During those years, she continued her Montessori studies and obtained her Primary and Assistants to Infancy diplomas. Rosario has founded and owned Montessori schools and has been a firm believer of “education for life”, taking students, as young as 6 years of age, to different countries to immerse themselves in the different cultures.This is Rosario's 7th year at TRIS.
