Hello Everyone! Thank you for taking time to visit my website. First off, I would like to share some information about myself. I am an educator in San Antonio, TX, having worked in underserved communities throughout my career. Some of the positions I have held include special education teacher, general education science teacher, science instructional coach, academic nstructional coach, administrative intern, and substitute assistant principal. I also served in the US Army as a mental health specialist which, in civilian lingo, is a counselor. Lastly, I am a parent to my oldest daughter, who has been diagnosed with moderate to severe autism. I can honestly say that parenting a child with special needs has so many “behind the scenes” challenges that many people, including educators, overlook.
I am the founder of Rodgers Speaks!, which is the name of my speaking/training organization. I have conducted staff development on topics such as special education & classroom management. I’ve had the opportunity to inform people about the challenges that parents of special needs children incur. I have also spoken on motivation and growth mindset to youth and adults. Some of the organizations I have partnered with include Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA), SAMMinistries, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Central TX, and the Y. I also am part of the leadership of the Power Scholars Academy, a highly acclaimed & academically rigorous summer program designed to prevent summer learning loss in at-risk students.
My personal and professional experiences have allowed me to gain some unique insights on a variety of topics that I believe can have a positive impact on the lives of many. I can provide affordable speaking and training that meets your budget on the following topics:
- Education topics such as special education and classroom management.
- Growth Mindset
- Strategies to relate to those with mental and intellectual disabilities.
- College and career readiness.
