Rolanda Wilkins, CTE teacher
Rolanda Wilkins always walks into class with a smile on her face and a good mood. At the beginning of second period, Wilkins takes her daily picture with juniors Olivia Roach, Emma Bruton, and Julianna Perez. Before class ends, Wilkins always has to say “bye love bugs” before we are allowed to leave.
Even during the boring units, she always creates fun discussions and activities for us to do. In her class, always be prepared to talk in front of the class whether it’s from presenting a project or Wilkins just asking us questions about our lives.
Throughout the year, we’ve all learned that some days you won’t actually learn anything. Instead you’ll get into a conversation that doesn’t even have anything to do with the class.
The class is always welcoming when you walk in with the many colors around the room and getting to sit at computers. You know it’s going to be a good day in class when you see the meditation video on the computer screens with the lamps on instead of the lights.
Wilkins will always make sure that everyone in the class is involved and that people are always comfortable. She will always tell us stories about past students that she ends up calling her kids.
