Roger was a junior high instructor at Grove Hill Elementary School for eight years. At Grove Hill he taught grades 4-7 in Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Mathematics, Computer Technology and Language Arts.

His present teaching role places him at Luray Middle School as a Language Arts Teacher for GRADE SEVEN.
