Teacher of the Year


Lisa Rogers

2021 Teacher of the Year
Mathematics Teacher
Central High School

Superintendent Mark Johnston, Lisa Rogers, and Assistant Principal Bereczki

Lisa Rogers has been a public school teacher for 24 years teaching Grades 8 through 12 at all levels of mathematics from basic Algebra through Pre-Calculus and Statistics. She has worked for Shenandoah County Public Schools for four years. 

Central High School Principal Lori Swortzel notes, "Ms. Lisa Rogers is an innovative problem solver, a dynamic teacher and all-around team player who affects our school and all of the children she teaches." Principal Swortzel continues: "In this difficult year, Lisa has risen as a leader in hybrid learning. She has developed excellent resources and interactive sites for students to use. From the very beginning, she demonstrated an ability to capture her students' attention and engage them in challenging circumstances." Assistant Principal Elizabeth Bereczki concurs: "Lisa has been instrumental in working with students and staff as we have been stretched in our learning and instructing this year. At the beginning of the year as teachers were learning how to navigate Schoology (our learning management system), Lisa took time to offer help to those who needed it. When asked to individually work with struggling teachers during planning before students started, Lisa took time out of her planning to ensure that teachers had the tools and the comfort they needed to use the platform." Principal Swortzel adds, "Lisa is also a leader after hours. She has been one of the key players in providing after-school help to students who are not engaging during the regular school days. Additionally, she created a presentation for the School Board and presented in person at one of the meetings early in the hybrid process."
