Roeper is celebrating Women’s History Month by recognizing the life of Annemarie Roeper, one of our founders who fled Nazi Germany and was a pioneer in education.
Annemarie was passionate about children and their right to grow according to their unique needs. In her words, “Humanity has made two promises to its children. The first is to prepare a world which accepts them and provides them with opportunities to live, grow, and create in safety. The other is to help them develop their whole beings to the fullest in every respect. Education is the vehicle through which we try to keep these promises.”
