Subjects Taught


My name is Garrett Rogers and I currently teach 5th grade here at Riverchase Elementary. Third grade was my home here at RES until recently when I decided it may be fun to try 5th grade for a bit. 

I live here in Hoover near Star Lake, my favorite place in Hoover. My wife Julie and I love walking our 3 kids (Olivia, Emma and Riggins) down to see the geese and turtles after dinner. We also have a dog Woody who is no longer allowed anywhere near the geese and turtles! We also recently added another canine member to family, Miss Penny Lane. I love to travel, play golf, and go to Alabama football games in the Fall. 

I graduated from UAB with a degree in Criminal Justice and briefly worked as a counselor for troubled youth before deciding I wanted to teach. I received my Masters in Education from UAB in 2009 and finally found a home here at RES in 2010.
