Mr. Rolando Parkins

Hello, my name is Rolando Parkins. The proud principal of Thomasboro Academy. I am honored to lead a school with such incredible students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community.  I feel very fortunate to be part of this school and to support the students and families.

I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty-four years. I have taught middle school social studies for 16 years in New York, Maryland, and here in Charlotte. I was Dean of Students at Piedmont IB Middle School for two years. For the last six years, I was the assistant principal at Mountain Island Lake Academy Pre-K-8. I am married to an educator who teaches at Phillip O. Berry high School, and I am the father of four. Two out of the four are also educators. 

Education is a lifelong process, and it is a privilege to serve this community in that process. I recognize that change in leadership can stir up both excitement and apprehension within the community. However, rest assured that I am committed to our students’ success. Everyone at Thomasboro has a passion for education. Their passion for teaching is evident in the performance data. Most importantly, I believe that students are at the center of all school-related decisions. Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible.   

Thank you

Rolando Parkins
