Mrs. Carol Rodgers
Welcome to ESL!
This year I am excited to teach English as a Second Language to students at McCall Elementary and Annetta Elementary. I have been an educator for 27 years, first teaching in La Vega ISD and Kennedale ISD, with the past 19 years proudly teaching Bearcats in Aledo ISD. Originally from West Virginia, I moved to Texas to attend Baylor University and have been a transplant Texan ever since. I am blessed to be married to my best friend, Craig, and we have two wonderful sons. Our older son Alex graduated from Aledo High School and is a junior at the University of Central Arkansas, and our younger son Brennan is an eighth grader at Aledo Middle School. We enjoy spending time together as a family, playing baseball, watching movies, and doing church mission work.
Over the years I have had the privilege of teaching first, third, and fourth grades. This is my fifth year as an ESL teacher, and I enjoy working with students from kindergarten through fifth grade. It is a wonderful journey to watch students acquire the English language as we work on their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Teaching is a ministry, and my students are blessings to me. I want my students to know that I will be their advocate both in and out of the classrooom, and that they can achieve anything that they put their minds to.
This is going to be a fantastic year!
