Degrees and Certifications:
Dr. Olawale Rotimi
I am excited to be starting my second year at William James Middle School. I have been a FWISD educator for 20 years. My wife is also an educator and we have two wonderful children.
I spent some of my childhood years in the Poly Community before going back to Nigeria in the 8th grade. I later returned to the community to attend Texas Wesleyan University. I feel a strong connection to the community.
Working with our students is my passion. I am blessed to have the opportunity to work in the trenches everyday so I can positively impact the lives of children. Expectations for them must be high. Giving-up on them is never an option. We would never give-up on our own children. The key is getting them to be intrinsically motivated-both in school and life.
I love travelling, gardening, fishing and football.
