I know Ellen since we were sophomores in high scool and I was an exchange student in the US. She was the first person I made friends with because of her nice character, gentle and aproachable demeanour. She had quite a large group of friends for which she was the glue that held them together. We all liked her best. I was so glad to see she chose to become a teacher. My first thought was that it suited her perfectly. She is friendly, very patient, and with a kind smile on her face always. I am sure all the children she comes in contact with have very much to gain for having her as their teacher. She IS a life changer to the better and has been since we were in high school for everyone around her (young or old). She has surely changed my life to the better and I fondly remember high school in the US because of her.

Ellen Rogers would be the perfect candidate for life changer of the year. When I was still student teaching, Rogers was always helpful and supportive towards me starting my teaching career. She was amazing to watch teach, because of how passionate she was about helping her students succeed. Her relationship with her students always come first and it showed in her classroom.
