Sr. Rosemary Kolich came to Saint Mary in 1997, after 17 years in secondary education.
A 1980 Saint Mary College grad, Sr. Kolich never dreamed as a student she would one day be teaching at her alma mater.
“I had excellent teachers as a student at Saint Mary. They truly engaged us. What was so transparent was their love of teaching and their commitment to us as both students and individuals. I hope I model the same for my students.”
Sr. Rosemary received her Master’s Degree from Middlebury College in Vermont. As a student in the Breadloaf School of English program, Sr. Rosemary had the opportunity to study Shakespeare at Oxford University in England, and Native American literature at St. John’s College in Santa Fe, N.M. She earned her Ph.D. from Saint Louis University.
Her primary focus is 19th century British Literature, with an emphasis on the women writers and characters of the Victorian period.
