Welcome to

Mrs. Rogers' class

Hello! My name is Jill Rogers and I teach 2nd and 3rd grade math and science. This is my first year teaching at Williams Academy and I am so happy to be a part of this amazing team!

I am originally from Albany, Georgia where I was a teacher for 11 years. I received my Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood ducation in 1995 from Georgia Southwestern State University. My family and I moved to North Carolina in 2008 to run the Candlestick Retreat Center in Minneapolis, NC. I did not teach for the first few years we were here, but was a substitute in the Avery County School district. In 2012, I began teaching Pre-K at Banner Elk Elementary School and had an amazing 10 years there. I decided I needed a change and came to Williams Academy!

I am married to my wonderful husband Chad, who is also a teacher. He teaches 6th grade math at Avery Middle School. We have been married for 28 years. We have three amazing children, Leedia, Lani and Griffin. Our oldest daughter Leedia is married and has a little girl named Poppie Lee! She is my first grandchild and I am in love!! Leedia also teaches at Williams Academy and I love working with her! Our middle daughter, Lani, is currently in clinicals to finish up her P.A degree. Griffin also works at Avery Middle School in the Exceptional Children's Program.

When I am not teaching or spending time with my family, I love to crochet or cook! I also love music and can play the piano.
