Mrs. Kimberly Rogers
Hello, parents and students of Lugoff-Elgin Middle School! My name is Kimberly Rogers. And I am one of the new 8th Grade Science teachers.
Originally from Columbia, I have lived with my family in Texas, California and New Jersey as a child. My father was in the military. But even though I really enjoyed my experiences traveling, I have always longed to put down roots. I think this is one of the reasons why I love working at LEMS so much. The community is so involved in the school that I find myself teaching the children and grandchildren of fellow teachers and working alongside those who attended LEMS as children!
I have five children of my own and have been married to my husband for over 25 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. And 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 imitating teachers. But as I grew up, I forgot that childhood dream of having my own classroom. It was not until I left my career and homeschooled my own children that I began to realize the need for love, acceptance and patient training that children really have. After considering it awhile, I knew that I wanted to work with tweens--who seem to have so many struggles to overcome.
Parents, I truly hope to be a valuable asset on your child's journey, passing along a love of science and wisdom gained over the years. 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.
