Hello Rogers Family,

I am truly honored and excited that I have been named Principal of Rogers Elementary. I am so humbled to be given such an extraordinary opportunity to return to Rogers Elementary in this capacity. I have great respect for the students, staff and parents of this amazing school community. It is a privilege to lead and continue building on the wonderful legacy of Rogers.

The end of this school year will mark my eleventh year in education, all of which has been served in Frisco ISD. I had the privilege of joining Frisco ISD as a student teacher in the spring of 2006 at Borchardt Elementary and Roach Middle School. I quickly realized Frisco was exactly where I wanted to pursue my education career. I officially began my career as a classroom teacher opening Ogle Elementary in the fall of 2006 teaching both fourth and second grades until 2011. I served as an elementary instructional coach for three years and was a part of opening Comstock Elementary in 2012. I assumed the role of Rogers Assistant Principal in 2014, serving through 2016. My time at Rogers was rewarding and awarded me the opportunity to become a part of a culture that is rooted in tradition and focused on putting the needs of children first. Finally, I assisted opening Miller Elementary this current year serving as Assistant Principal.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, my husband Mikie, and one year old daughter Georgia. We love to enjoy outside activities and cheering for our number one team, Texas Tech University. I also enjoy serving charitable foundations and believe that you are only as strong as the person next to you and we all must be there to help one another.

Some people may say you can not go home again, but I am fortunate to say I am. My two years at Rogers as the Assistant Principal truly developed not only the leader that I wanted to be, but who I am. As you all know, the culture at Rogers is about family and a strong commitment to children. It will be my daily mission to continue to develop and foster an environment where students come to school not only to learn but where the focus is developing the whole child. I so look forward to reconnecting with each of you and meeting the new students and families.

I am beyond excited to begin this amazing adventure with each of you. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and the students at Rogers in this role. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share. I may be contacted at mcgowanj@friscoisd.org.

I look forward to embarking this exciting journey with each of you.


A note from Mrs. Salomon…

Hi! My name is Jena Salomon, and I am thrilled to be serving the exceptional students, staff and community of Rogers Elementary! 

This will be my 17th year in education, 14th year in Frisco ISD and 4th year as an Assistant Principal. Prior to being an Assistant Principal at Rogers, I was AP at Taylor Elementary. Leading up to my administrative roles, I served as an Instructional Coach for 2 years, teaching for 8 years in FISD, and 3 years in Richardson ISD.

I received my BS in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas A&M University (Whoop!), and my Master of Education in Administration degree from Lamar University.

My husband, David, and I have 3 boys, Tucker (2), Dylan (10) and Cameron (14). The oldest boys attend school in FISD as a 4th grader and a middle school 8th grader this year.  

We enjoy baseball...ALL the time, and I try to fit in weight training and my passion for photography every now and then, as well. I love reading to learn when I can squeeze it in! 

I am truly looking forward to a great year at Rogers Elementary!! Mrs. McGowan and I are focused on fostering a strong culture and climate at Rogers, as well as instilling a sense of wonder in all who enter our campus doors. We look forward to building and strengthening supportive relationships with our Rogers students, staff and community!
