About – Joni Rogers
Mrs. Rogers began her career in education having been inspired by the great teachers who she encountered in college. A math major, having arrived at college from her hometown in rural Minnesota, she quickly discovered the impact individual teachers can make on the lives of their students when they invest in their learning. As her professors guided her success she became dedicated to the idea of bringing the same type of dedication they showed her to students much earlier in their journeys as students. Upon graduation, Mrs. Rogers pursued her passion and joined Teach for America as a high school algebra instructor at South Shore High School in Chicago.
Her career as an educator now spans thirteen years, four cities and public, charter and private school settings. She has taught mathematics across multiple settings including as an algebra teacher for the Noble Network at Pritzker College Prep and as a boarding school instructor, coach and dorm mom at Cheshire Academy in Connecticut. In 2012, she transitioned from the classroom to a leadership role as Vice Principal for Firstline Schools in New Orleans where she focused on curriculum and teacher development in a school transformation effort.
In 2014, Mrs. Rogers, inspired by the impact of the network on the students they serve, she rejoined Noble at Pritzker College Prep. There she served as 11th grade level lead, geometry teacher, and assistant dean of culture before taking the job as Dean of Instruction at the Noble Academy. Mrs. Rogers then moved into the role of assistant principal at the Noble Academy. There Mrs. Rogers directed development and learning for teachers, grade level coordinators and internal Harkness mentors.
Throughout her career, Mrs. Rogers has been dedicated to helping students to fully unlock their boundless potential by focusing on the development and delivery of world class instruction.
