I am Patricia Rodgers, originally from Columbia and a graduate of MTSU. We have two children and three grandchildren. With the exception of one year in Metro, I have devoted my professional career to Sumner County and most of those years at GBE. I have taught preschool, grades K-5, a 3/4 split, a 4/5 split, and five years teaching GED prep classes. My oldest graduate was 80 years old. I also trained TN teachers and administrators in 6th grade Common Core math skills. My family is a very special part of my life, and most of my spare time centers around them and my church family. I do enjoy travel, the outdoors, the beach, and books.
