Renota Rogers is a familiar leader to students at Temple High School, serving in the school's administration for the last five years first as an assistant principal and most recently as the Associate Principal.
At the high school, Ms. Rogers showed an innovative attitude regarding curriculum and teaching practices, along with a knack for connecting with students on an educational and personal level.
Now, she will take those strengths and broaden their impact across Temple ISD. At their meeting on Monday, June 11 the Temple ISD Board of Trustees approved Rogers as the district's new Executive Director for Secondary Education.
Rogers has a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and International Studies and a master’s degree in Public Administration from Louisiana State University. She also has a Master of Education Administration from Texas A&M University-Central Texas.
Rogers began her career in education in Indian River County School District in Vero Beach, Florida, as a Spanish teacher in 2004 at Vero Beach High School. After three years in Florida, she went on to teach Spanish for six years in Killeen ISD before coming to Temple High School.
Renota’s children are Ajani (a Temple High School graduate), Alvin and Amaris.
She replaces Lisa Adams, who was approved in May as Temple's next Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction.
