Biographical Information

As a twelfth grade English teacher at Collins High School in Collins, Jacque Rogers is helping students realize that "there are no limitations to the parts they can play on life's stage-whether the play is in Collins, Mississippi or in our nations capital." Ms. Rogers, recipient of a Christa McAuliffe Fellowship, is particularly focused on students' need for "professional teachers." "Since the beginning of my career," she notes, "I have attempted to be that professional teacher who has an active interest in children and youth ... who is qualified and competent ... who can work constructively with parents and the community... and who is proud of the teaching profession."
