A.S. Early Childhood Education – Chattanooga State
A.S. Banking, Finance, and Business Administration – Dalton State

Lori Roden begins her 4th year teaching in K4, but is no stranger to Brainerd Baptist School. Her son Josh attended Brainerd Baptist from K3 through 5th grade. Prior to coming to BBS, Lori taught in the PreK program at Silverdale Baptist Academy. Her love and experience with children started in high school working with preschool children at First Baptist Church in Dalton.

Lori received an Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education from Chattanooga State. Before deciding to become a teacher, Lori spent eleven years in the banking business where she met her husband, Wendell. In addition to her degree in education, she also has a degree in Banking, Finance, and Business Administration.

She and Wendell are blessed with a daughter, Wendy Williams and two grandsons, Cameron 21 and Cade 16. Their son, Josh Roden, a graduate of Silverdale Baptist Academy is attending Lee University.

Lori has worshipped and served at Brainerd Baptist Church since 1987. She and her family have had the joy of participating in a few mission trips and look forward to more in the future. Lori enjoys teaching a Sunday School class for two-year olds and has for many years.
Lori loves working with crafts, gardening, reading Christian fiction and spending time with her family.

She is excited God has placed her here at this time to share His love at BBS by partnering with our parents in the education of children.
