Dr. Vicki Rogers
Dr. Rogers leads Champion's academic-life coaching support, teaching students important executive functioning, study, and test-taking skills necessary to be successful in their learning journey. She works with students across the learning continuum, and has extensive experience working with neurodiverse learners. In parallel, Dr. Rogers also coaches parents to help them understand how to best support their children in this learning journey. Additionally, she regularly provides consulting services to schools with regards to curricular development and integration of science-based study skills in their programs.
Dr. Rogers brings over 25 years of teaching experience across all levels of learning (from preschool through university) at high-performing academic institutions in the United States and around the world. During this time she has taught thousands of students and helped to coach them through their academic and life journeys. This first-hand experience with students (and parents too!) who were often stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious allowed for careful observation of children and young adults in their sometimes ‘unnatural habitat’ of school, and the impact that this setting had on developing their executive functioning skills.
Informed by these years of interactions, Dr. Rogers started Champion to support students as they navigate their academically challenging environments, and position themselves to enjoy their learning journeys. After moving out of the formal classroom, her motivation as an educator has not changed, only shifted slightly in its focus: to support her students - who she calls her “Champions” - in their personal academic and life journeys, with a focus on executive functioning skills development that will serve them across a wide range of subject matter. Dr. Rogers believes that young adults who understand their learning style and unique strength sets will be successful in learning, and live inspired, confident, purposeful lives.
Dr. Rogers’ upbringing as a bilingual Third Culture Kid in Asia also allows her to easily connect with students from many different walks of life and inspire them to reach new heights of success in striving to achieve their goals. Her motto “Be Responsible For Your Own Intelligence!”, is something that was emblazoned on the wall of her classroom for decades. A natural learner herself, she is passionate about imparting this self-motivation to her students through her own love of learning.
Dr. Rogers’ academic background includes both a Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science and Economics from Colorado State University, and a Doctorate in Education from Durham University (UK), along with a post-doctoral certification in Executive Leadership from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. She is also a certified Strengths Communicator and Practitioner©, and as an educational psychologist, is passionate about the science behind learning and the brain.
As a staunch believer in total wellness, Dr. Rogers is an avid runner and swimmer, and takes every opportunity to play outdoors, whether in the rainforests of Singapore or the mountains of Colorado, where she calls home. She loves spending time with her son, husband, and hyperactive Vizsla.
