Mrs. Rogers taught me how to read. She taught me a love of school and learning. I loved going to her class, because she was part like a grandmother, and part like a friend. She was nurturing and caring, friendly and fun, but also made sure we took care of business. I know that the first years of my education helped shape the person I was to become… a teacher.
I know that Mrs. Rogers had much influence on my person. As I went through school, I would contact Mrs. Rogers and she always remembered me and gave me advice. I treasure memories of her classroom.
