You would be hard pressed to find a professor at Tennessee Tech that loves Golden Eagles as much as LaNise Rosemond; being a golden eagle is what brought this exercise science, physical education and wellness professor to Cookeville.
“I absolutely loved Tech’s mascot and that is one of the main reasons why I chose Tech,” said Rosemond. “I used to teach and coach basketball at one of our neighboring institutions. I can remember coaching against Tech and saying to myself, I would love to be a Golden Eagle.’”
Rosemond has studied eagles for years, and makes sure to teach her students the importance of soaring high at Tech and in their lives.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in physical education from Norfolk State University, her master’s degree in sport management from Florida A & M University and her doctorate in administration and supervision from Tennessee State University. She has been teaching for 19 years and 9 of those years have been at Tech.
Rosemond strives to give her students perspective in their academic pursuits by stacking her curriculum with real life situations, problem base leading, flipped class teaching style, leadership development training and effective interviewing practices.
“I love teaching, being innovative, creative, and providing students with many service opportunities in and out of the classroom. I get a chance to teach students the importance of making someone’s life better,” said Rosemond. “I enjoy empowering our students to believe that they can, and will be successful as they redirect their thoughts toward achieving and reaching their dreams.”
