Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Rodney Jenkins
This is my 14th year teaching at FVMS and cannot imagine teaching anywhere else. Although Baton Rouge, LA, is home, I also grew up in Illinois, Ohio and New York. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Louisiana Lafayette (Geaux Ragin Cajuns) and Master’s from N.C. State (Go Pack). I worked for many years for State Government in Budgeting and Administration before discovering my true passion as an educator.
I am married to Angie and we are Iron Distance Triathletes and Marathon Distance runners. I have completed 3 Ironman's, 11, half Iron’s and 37 marathons. I am also a spin cycling and water aerobics instructor. When I am not training, I train people to become triathletes and run a series of mock triathlons. We love to travel and spend our summers in Europe, Australia or the Western U.S National Parks. When we travel, I always have a camera in my hand. There is nothing like backpacking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, hiking through the Swiss Alps or snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef. The best part though is sharing my travel and fitness experiences with my students.
It’s going to be a great year and as we say in Louisiana. Laissez les bons temps rouler.
