It’s National School Counseling Week, and Ohio County Schools would like to thank Warwood School counselor Rhea Rodgers on her excellent career as a counselor and as a teacher.
Rodgers has served as a counselor in Ohio County Schools for 25 years after serving the school system for 10 years as a teacher. She has been a counselor or teacher at the elementary, middle and high school levels, and she will be retiring at the close of the 2021-2022 school.
Rodgers said she enjoyed teaching, but she was especially drawn to becoming a counselor.
“I wanted to help students who were struggling with social and emotional issues, and that’s why I became a counselor,” Rodgers said. “It just spoke to my heart. I had struggles, as most of us do, and I realized the kids need someone who is there for them.”
She said she has loved her career, and she will miss her work in Ohio County Schools.
“I feel blessed and lucky to have been in Ohio County Schools for 35 years,” Rodgers said. “Retirement is exciting and a little bit scary, but I am going to I am going to miss being with the students every day and all of the amazing teachers, administrators and service personnel.”
Thank you for all you’ve done for the students of Ohio County Schools, Ms. Rodgers!
