Ms. Derry Rogers
My name is Derry Rogers, and I am so excited to be teaching first grade this year at Rocky Branch Elementary! I am originally from Leesburg, GA, but I moved to Athens to attend the University of Georgia. I graduated from UGA with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education- Go Dawgs! Before joining the Oconee County School System, I gained teaching experience in both Madison and Clarke counties.
Some of my hobbies include reading, traveling, and exploring all the different parts of Athens. I love to try new foods and spend time outdoors. A few of my favorite places to go are Memorial Park, Lake Herrick, and the Botanical Gardens.
I am honored to be a part of your child’s education! I do not take this responsibility lightly. My number one goal is for your child to leave school each day feeling loved, cared for, and important- because they are! I hope their time in our class sparks curiosity and ignites in them a passion for learning. I cannot wait to work with you and your first grader. It’s going to be a great year! Go Rockets!
