Mrs. Carolyn Rogers

I immigrated to Arizona from Canada in 1985. I moved to the states to marry my husband and to Arizona to begin our teaching careers. We are both educators and earned our Master's Degrees at ASU.  Both of our children also followed suit and got their degrees from ASU as well in the fields of Information Technology and Journalism.
During my 33 years as an educator I've taught everything from 2nd through 8th grade as well as serving as an administrator for 7 years. I've been privileged to work with both teachers and students in several school districts throughout the valley but I'm proud to call West Wing not only my school but my home.
In April 2014 I was awarded with DVEF Teacher of the Year and in April 2016 I was honored to be awarded a "Demonstration Classroom of Excellence" award from DVUSD. In  I'm proud to invite other educators into my classroom to observe and learn from my amazing students! 
In 2018 I received district top honors for the most math and ELA district-wide student growth as demonstrated by the AzMerit scores received by my students for two years in a row. 
  • At West Wing we will continue to focus on facilitating the learning down to the learner's level.  West Wing classrooms will implement the Plan, Do, Study, Act System (PDSA) which ensures that all learners will be engaged, involved and aligned with their learning throughout every step of the learning process.  At West Wing we use several strategies to assist us in completing this task:  all leaders/facilitators will establsh common norms, develop a mission statement along with ahaving systems in place to continue to look at ongoing data, teachers will modify and facilitate the learning process, so that learning goals can be mastered.

    Our learning plan: 100% of 6th Grade math students will meet or exceed the Arizona College and Career-Ready Standards as measured by the quarterly DVMA.  

    Our mission: We will read, write, speak and think like mathematicians wherever we are, in whatever we are doing.

    Our Math Goal:  100% of our math class will receive a score of 80% or better on all midchapter, quizzes and end of chapter tests

    DVUSD Mission Statement:  It is our mission to provide extraordinary educational opportunities to every learner. 

     DVUSD Vision Statement: Graduating life long learners who will successfully compete, lead, and positively impact the world.
