In his first year at Ardmore High School, Chad Rogers currently teaches English I and II. A graduate of Latta High School in Ada and East Central University also in Ada, Chad did not start with a career in education coming out of college. Chad was a firefighter and would later medically retire from the Fire Department in 2013. He also umpired baseball for 17 years as well as volunteered at East Central University as an assistant coach for two years.
“Now, I am honored to be a part of the Ardmore Tiger family,” said Chad.
Not only is Chad busy in the classroom but he also finds time to help out the FCA Club as well as the baseball team. With a busy workload, being a husband, and a father, Chad has a lot of drive, but when he is feeling overwhelmed, he knows exactly who to look at for a little inspiration.
“My bride is my inspiration,” Chad said. “I have had the opportunity to watch her firsthand for a lot of years, treating her classroom as a mission field. She is passionate about every student.”
Teaching can be a very rewarding career, but there is one thing that makes it extra special for Chad.
“My favorite thing about teaching is getting the chance to help each student succeed and creating a classroom atmosphere that allows them to be who they are, become more knowledgeable and confident in their abilities as a student and as a young person,” Chad said.
In his free time Chad enjoys date nights swimming with his wife Missy and daddy-daughter date nights with his daughter Mal.
