Welcome, Kelly Rogers

TIS is pleased to introduce Kelly Rogers, our new IB Coordinator, to our community (Paula is spending time with her baby daughter)! Kelly hails from the Washington, DC area, and she most recently was at The Washington International School..

  • Bachelor of Arts from University of Virginia
  • Master of Teaching from University of Virginia
  • In education since 2009

Here is a message from Kelly:

I am thrilled to be joining TIS this year! From a young age I knew that I wanted to work with children, and through my experiences in various schools and roles both in the US and abroad I also discovered a passion for working with teacher teams to build and develop the students’ experience. I am an enthusiastic supporter of the opportunities that TIS offers its students. To learn in an international and multi-lingual environment helps children develop an understanding of the beauties and complexities of our world, and the PYP provides a solid framework for deep understanding.
I am joining TIS from Washington, DC, where I was most recently math curriculum coordinator. I am very happy to be in Portland and to take advantage of what the area has to offer. If I am not at work you might find me kayaking, cooking, traveling, or reading.
Welcome, Kelly!
