~ Attendance, John Rogers
Hi everyone! I have been at John Rogers since 2015 and been having a blast ever since! I try to keep my students active as many minutes in the gym as possible! We learn a variety of team sports and individual non-competitive games and activities. Cheers to healthy living and fun fitness!
Keep it Healthy John Rogers!!! You guys rock!!!
Years teaching (at Adams, and in total): This is my first year at Adams, but this will be my 15th year of teaching in Seattle.
Grade levels taught: Mostly 3rd, 4th, 5th grade.
Educational background: I graduated from San Francisco State in Liberal Studies. I earned my teaching credential with MA in Education from Antioch University. I received my National Board Certification in 2009.
Past careers/lives before teaching: Growing up I had lots of
babysitting gigs, but my first real job was at Godfather’s Pizza. I have taught pre-school, worked at a video store, and was an office assistant at Ellis Brooks Chevrolet Car Dealership.
Favorite artist/musician/performer: There are just too many different artists I love, but during my recent trip to France I became fascinated by French street art, the Italian sculptor Adolfo Wildt, and Leonardo da Vinci’s many inventions.
Favorite creative medium: Mixed Media Projects.
Book that influenced you most as a child: Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle (Maybe I related to the kids in the story because I had a few bad habits when I was younger?).
Special skills/talents: Making banana chocolate chip muffins.
Super power you wish you had: Flying, so I could travel around the world and visit new places.
Food you refuse to eat (even now as an adult!) and/or strangest food you've ever tried:
Fried or hard-boiled eggs, but I loved them scrambled with mushrooms.
Favorite morning beverage: Coffee (a must!) or a Soy Latte.
Oddball fact about yourself: My daughter and I found a banana spider while traveling in Korea.
