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 Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education - Go Dawgs! I also obtained a Masters in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw State University. Additionally, I have endorsements in Reading and Gifted Education. Before joining the Oconee County School System in 2019, I gained teaching experience in both Madison and Clarke counties.

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!
