Mrs. Amy Rogers

I am a southerner from Alabama and love watching Alabama football in the fall with my husband and two sons. I graduated from the University of West Florida and began my teaching career in D49 at Skyview Middle School. I taught 8th grade math and Algebra 1 for 4 years. The Air Force moved my family to Montgomery, Alabama where I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math along with Algebra 1 at the DoD school on base for four years. Thanks to the military, our family moved back to Colorado Springs and I have been teaching College Algebra and Applied Algebra 2 at Vista Ridge High School since 2015. In 2018, completed a graduate mathematics certificate from Emporia State University and have been teaching MAT121 concurrently as an adjunct instructor through PPCC ever since. I truly enjoy teaching math and helping students succeed.
