Math Teacher Maria Rodgers, You're Ohio's Milken Educator!Milkovich Middle School | Maple Heights, OH | Jan 10, 2018
With Milken Family Foundation Senior Program Administrator Greg Gallagher holding the microphone, Milken Educator Award recipient Maria Rodgers takes a moment to collect her thoughts before addressing the assembly gathered in her honor.
Rodgers is known to go the extra mile to fully engage her students. When her previous school, Barack Obama School in the same district, developed a “boot camp” to prepare students for a state assessment, Rodgers showed up in full Army fatigues and put 150 fourth- and fifth-graders through their paces for three hours with games, learning stations and modules.
