Ms. Terri Rodgers
My name is Terri Rodgers. I am the Reading Recovery teacher here at Richmond Drive Elementary. I work with students in first and second grade on reading and writing.
This is my first year at Richmond Drive. I taught first grade for 20 years—12 of which were at India Hook Elementary in Rock Hill. I also have 5 years of experience in kindergarten and 4 years in administration working as an assistant principal and as the Language Arts Curriculum Coordinator. I have studied literacy with some of the best researchers and teachers throughout the country and even in New Zealand. I am also certified in Gifted and Talented Education.
I have two wonderful boys, Brock and Isaac. Both boys are attending Francis Marion University and are playing college baseball. I have two rescued animals, a dog named Rocky and a cat named Wilson. I love to walk, hike and swim and of course read. My two favorite places to relax are at the beach or an art museum.
