Math Teacher Maria Rodgers, You're Ohio's Milken Educator!Milkovich Middle School | Maple Heights, OH | Jan 10, 2018
Back in the classroom, Maria Rodgers leads students in a math lesson. She has taught every level, from struggling learners to gifted, and often wears costumes related to the subject at hand, including a grass skirt, wizard hat and waitress uniform. Rodgers pioneered the concept of individualized growth targets and differentiated goal-setting at Milkovich, making little “fat heads” for every student and pinning them on the wall with data charts; every building in the district has since followed her lead.
