Ms. Melissa A. Rogers

I am so excited to be a 4th grade teacher at Palmer Lake Elementary School and am looking forward to a great year!

I lived in 4 states growing up, but Colorado was always my favorite. I studied Elementary Education at the University of Northern Colorado and graduated in 2008. In 2012, I moved to Uganda where I spent 8 years working with educational non-profit organizations. I came back to the US initially in 2019 and taught Makerspace and 4th grade in the state of Washington. I have loved my varied roles and I am passionate about education. I am dedicated to being a positive partner with each of my students and their families for their educational growth. I am thrilled to be back in Colorado and a member of the Palmer Lake community. When I'm not working in my classroom, you'll find me along a mountain trail with my two Ugandan pups.
