About Rodger Moore
Rodger is a recently retired science teacher that always tried to integrate gaming into his teaching. He has been a gamer most of my life and wants to bring this passion to others. He wants to take his passion for gaming to education and show what potential it has in the classroom. He has also taken a job in a board game store.
At Board Gaming with Education, Rodger is the “druid.” He uses his druid powers to assume many roles as a game resource and product coordinator. He is essential to the Board Gaming with Education Online Marketplace in many other aspects including community outreach, support, and product development.

Games have the potential to engage students that may not participate, not to mention make the learning fun!
We are always looking at fun and quirky ways of highlighting the Member of the Week. What is one question you wish we would ask you?
What got you into gaming in the first place?
I always loved the interaction that games promote in people. Being someone who is much more introverted, it allows me to be a bit more extroverted.
