Mr. Nick Rotenberry

Hey everyone! My name is Mr. Rotenberry and I am excited to be entering into my third year here at Polenta. I have spent the last two years in 4th grade but I am excited to be joining the 2nd grade team. I am a graduate of UNC - Chapel Hill (Go Heels!) and I was a Camp Director prior to being a teacher. I enjoy reading, playing sports, and a good cup of coffee! One of my passions is for students to enjoy learning and feel success at whatever they are doing. I'm looking forward to an awesome school year!
