Ms. Brittany Rogers
My name is Brittany Rogers. I am so excited and blessed to be teaching your child this year! With God as our center, I know we will accomplish so much learning with many smiles and successes.
I have been teaching for eight years. I have taught grades 3 through 6. After some time off to be home with my boys, I am excited to return to the classroom. I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling. The Catholic faith has always been a big part of my life and I am excited to share my love for Jesus with the students. I hope I can learn from and follow their child like love for our Lord.
I am excited to get to know each child on a more personal level. My goal is to meet them where they are right now and challenge them as the year progresses. I look forward to working with you to make the year successful for your child.
