Thank you for entrusting your children to my care each weekday. It is a great honor to be able to spend time with them. Teaching isn't just a job to me; it is a calling. I am truly blessed to earn a living doing what I love. Jr. High students are at such a transforming age. They are beginning to formulate their own beliefs, to see shades of gray, and to figure out who they currently are, and who they want to become. I prayerfully approach each day, asking the Lord to use me in spite of myself. There are times I will undoubtedly fail, but I will continue to give my utmost.
Our partnership is crucial to your student’s education, and growing walk with Jesus, so I welcome your words of wisdom and thank you for your continued support. Please don’t hesitate to contact me over any need that may arise. Together, lets pray and work toward developing a teen-ager that will "Love the Lord with all their hearts, soul, strength and mind."
In His Service,
Rogers' Exceptional Students: (A section for acknowledging our kids)
Staring out my classroom window
Orange and red leaves fall
to the frosty earth
How long until rich pumpkin pie,
soft, hot buns
and Mom's stuffing
sit steaming on our family table?
A chill shivers up my spine
as imagine waking up
to snow covered rooftops.

My pencil scratches at the paper
The sound of soft charcoal rubbing against the paper
My thoughts swirl.
My hand and brain meld; creation incarnate.
A choice arises;
what to write?
I choose, and strands of thoughts envelope me.
The path of my developing creation is unclear.
Characters develop, landscapes form, and love flourishes.
A whole world exists in the midst of the pages,
People say magic does not exist,
But it does.
It exists in the ink of the paper.
It exists in the thoughts of the writer.
It exists in the enthrallment of the reader.
Writing is the conduit of life.
And it can never die.

I graduated from Walla Walla College with a B.S. in education. My freshman year I met my BFF, Ken Busby, and married him a couple years later. After teaching in Adventist schools for seven years I stayed home with my own children, and home-schooled them for another seven years. As the oldest of eight chidren, and a mother to four, I don't have a lot of time for my hobbies. However, I do enjoy reading, scrapbooking, pinterest, snow-skiing, women's Bible study, and organizing my home. God has richly blessed me.
