Spotlight on New Teachers
This is Coach Rogers’ second time to be an LISD Eagle; he worked here in 2011 as well. A graduate of Southwestern University in Waxahachie, he was a fifteen year old freshman at West High School when he realized that he wanted to be an educator. His mother was a teacher. There was a coach and science teacher that had a very big influence on him as well. From the time football started to the year he graduated, the only thing that he was going to be was a teacher and a football coach. It is the greatest and most rewarding job that there is.
He enjoys every day that he gets up, knowing that he is going to work at the job that he loves. His father always told him to “do what makes you happy and don’t worry about how much money you can make.” If you are not happy, then your family won’t be happy.
Outside of work Coach Rogers enjoys spending time with his family. He is married to Marsha Rogers who teaches third grade. Together they are raising two sons, which means that sports are a big part of their life.
