The Administrative Team
Dr. Kecia Rogers
As a native of Durham and a product of Durham Public Schools, I have more than twenty years of experience as an effective educator working in Durham Public Schools. I earned a Bachelor’s and Master's degree in Elementary Education as well as a Master’s degree in School Administration from North Carolina Central University. In addition, I earned a Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from High Point University. I am happily married with two children. All of my experiences as a teacher, administrator, wife, and mother have prepared me for the challenging yet rewarding profession as an inspiring visionary and strong instructional leader.
One of the first things you will notice about me is that I am very much a teacher at heart and by action. First and foremost, I believe school is about students and learning. Everything we do and the decisions we make are based on our students’ needs. I love children and enjoy being in the classroom. I am a servant leader and view myself as a leader of leaders. Students, teachers, families and the community should be inspired and empowered to act within a school community. Leading with my heart, head and hands are key characteristics of my leadership style.
As an instructional leader my mission is to put students’ needs first while promoting academic excellence and closing achievement gaps. Fostering a collaborative learning community in which all stakeholders problem-solve and analyze data to meet the individual needs of every learner is my commitment. Consistent two-way communication between school, home and the community are key to our success.
My personal mantra is to Engage Students, Support Staff, Involve Parents, Accept No Excuses, & Pass it on! I look forward to our incredible journey, collaboration and partnership of continued overall excellence at Rogers-Herr Year-Round Middle School. Thank you in advance for your overwhelming show of support, input and partnership as we work together to ensure all students reach their maximum potential and continue to grow.
I am Ernetta Cagle, Assistant Principal at Rogers-Herr. This is my sixth year in education and I recently completed my Principal Internship here at Rogers-Herr. I am very passionate about the work that I do for the students in our building and look forward to continuing my work with the faculty and staff in our efforts to increase the achievement for all students. I count it an honor to serve as the 6th Grade and Pioneer Team (7th grade) administrator. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Bennett College for Women. In addition, I received my teaching certification and Master in School Administration from North Carolina Central University. In my spare time I enjoy going to the movies and mentoring our youth. My goal as Assistant Principal is to provide the leadership that will facilitate each student reaching their greatest potential both academically and socially. As a member of the school community, I am excited to support families in preparing students at Rogers-Herr for their current and future success. My office door is always open. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. I look forward to our continued partnership! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
