I taught school with Mrs. Rogers for years and years. In class she was stern and very serious, not to mention, knowledgeable. In the teachersâ€™ lounge she was smiling and relating funny, entertaining stories! We had many laughs together!I went to her several times to ask opinions and advice. She was a very sweet friend and coworker. I will miss her, as all her friends will! â™¥ï¸
