My name is Paige Rogers and I am currently the technology integrator for McKinney Boyd High School in McKinney, Texas. This is my seventh year in the education field and I'm finishing up my Master's in Educational Technology - Library Science at Texas A&M Commerce. I am so excited to reach my professional goal of becoming a Media Resource Specialist!
A bit about me...
I started my teaching career at age sixteen by teaching piano from my home. I graduated high school in Gilbert, Arizona with a 4.0 GPA and attended Arizona State University on a full-ride academic scholarship. At ASU I majored in Interdisciplinary Studies with emphases in mathematics and education. I made the Dean's List each semester of my undergraduate degree and graduated summa cum laude with a 3.87 GPA.
One month after my college graduation I had my first child. During the next five years I stayed home with what would end up being three children while teaching piano lessons.
After the birth of my third child I decided to get certified to teach. I went through an alternative certification program and got my first job teaching one year later in Garland, Texas.
The rest is history!
I taught at South Garland High School for two years. During my time at South I taught Algebra II, Algebra II PreAP, and also taught students in credit recovery where they were taking courses ranging from Algebra I to Pre-Calculus. In February of my second year I was honored to be named Teacher of the Month!
After leaving South Garland I was hired in McKinney ISD at McKinney Boyd High School. This job had some fantastic personal benefits including on-site preschool for my three year old and it also cut my commute in half.
At McKinney Boyd High School I taught Algebra I (academic and inclusion), PreAP Geometry, and Advanced Quantitative Reasoning before becoming the technology integrator. I wrote curriculum for both Geometry and Algebra and was the Algebra team lead for two years .
I have learned an incredible amount as a technology specialist on campus! I built and maintain my school's website, developed digital PD, and assisted in a large capacity with our 1:1 initiative.
