About Me

Mrs. Rokas

My goal as a teacher is to foster a love of learning in my classroom.  I have a passion for teaching, especially math, and I work hard to get my students excited about learning everyday.  I encourage my students to be problem solvers and active participants in our classroom.  We celebrate success, big or small.
