As an independent study teacher I work with 9-12 grade students through an on-line program. My goal is to help students stay on track or earn additional credits to graduate from high school and be productive and knowledgeable citizens.

Elaine Rogers

Independent Studies Teacher
Education: Bachelor of Arts, Multiple Subject Clear Credential – CSUF Fresno

As a teacher in Independent Study; we are a computer based program where the students earn their credits through on-line coursework. We have a computer lab set up in our classroom where the students can work and test Mon.-Fri. from 8:00 – 4:00 PM. In the lab, I am able to monitor each student through my computer and update classes, record grades and monitor their work and progress. The students are able to work at their own pace and can excel in credits. The computer program is an excellent tool not only academically; but also in teaching technological skills.
