Hello.. My name is Ms. Rodgers.
I am originally from Beaumont, TX and a graduate of Lamar University. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature with a concentration in Communications & Public Relations. As a full-time student and employee, I spent my spare time tutoring classmates and developing a website for emerging artists & entrepreneurs on campus. After graduating, I relocated to Houston and began a career in education.
As a first-year teacher, I chose to create an opportunity for mentorship with young girls by re-establishing the school's cheer program. The freshman team went on to participate in UIL competitions, community clean-up efforts, and become volunteer liaisons for the 2017 Super Bowl Committee.
Now in my sixth year, I am currently an English Instructor and Team Lead at an high school in the Houston area. I was recently inspired to re-launch her website, Fourth & Market, as a non-profit organization for students with interests in entrepreneurship and business. Outside the classroom, I am often found reading, writing, painting, or traveling.
