Mrs. Kimberly Rogers

Hello, parents and students of Lugoff-Elgin Middle School!  My name is Kimberly Rogers.  I am the new 8th Grade Science Teacher on the Blue Team.  Originally from Columbia, I have lived with my family in other places in the United States as a military brat.  My stepfather was in the Army. And though I enjoyed my experiences traveling, I have always longed for roots. Perhaps this is why I love working at LEMS so much.  The surrounding community is so invested in the school that I find myself teaching the offspring and grandchildren of colleagues as well as teaching alongside those who attended LEMS as children!


I am the mother of five children and have been married to my husband for over 24 years.  I am a graduate of the South Carolina Governor's School for Science and Mathematics in Hartsville and have a bachelor's in chemistry from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro.  I also have coursework in chemical engineering.  My work experience is in the area of environmental science through several positions in the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.  


As a child I loved helping people and emulating teachers.  But as I grew up, I forgot that childish dream of running my own classroom.  It was not until I left my career to go home and ultimately homeschool my own children for nearly ten years that I began to realize the need for love, acceptance and patient training that children really need.  After researching and considering it for a while, I knew that I wanted to work with tweens--who seem to have so many struggles to overcome. 


Parents, I hope to be a valuable asset in your child's journey by passing along knowledge gained while pursuing an education and career in science.  I also hope to be a help to you by offering perspective as I help your student adjust to the greater responsibility and accountability demanded by the eighth grade.  Students, I hope you are ready to hit the ground running!  I am sure it will be a remarkable journey.
