Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Gwendolyn Rodgers


I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. I am a native Charlestonian and I am married with two beautiful children. They have blessed me with three amazing grandchildren. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy singing, writing songs, going to church and spending time with my AWESOME family.

 I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Baptist College of Charleston (now Charleston Southern University) and a Masters of Education Degree in Special Education from East Tennessee State University. I have taught in grades 1-8 while traveling as an Army wife in Germany, Tennessee and Kentucky before returning home to teach. I have been teaching for 29 years and I have spent the last 17 years at WHAIES teaching first grade. I am very excited about this school year and I am looking forward to doing lots of fun and wonderful learning activities. I want your child to learn, enjoy learning, and strive to reach his or her fullest potential. As we strive to be the best that we can be and do our personal best, I look forward to your support and participation in this year's events. Our ultimate goal is to SOAR, that we may grow in every area possible.
