If you can’t find George Coy Rollins teaching chemistry in Dr. Matt Brook’s classroom, you can find him on the golf course or hanging out with his fiancee in his spare time.

Rollins has been student teaching regular and honors chemistry at the high school since the beginning of the second semester. He graduated from St. Louis Community College in 2012 with an associates degree in Life Sciences. Afterwards, he graduated from UMSL with a bachelor of arts in chemistry and is aiming to receive his master’s degree in secondary education from UMSL in May.

“I am teaching at U. City in order to fill my requirement for certification and credit hours toward my M.Ed,” Rollins said.

Teaching has always been something that Rollins has found pleasure in doing. He had to make a decision between working in a pharmacy or becoming a teacher. He chose teaching because it’s a more satisfying job.

“After working two years in the pharmacy, I decided that teaching was a career that I wanted, as it is rewarding in ways that pharmacy is not,” said Rollins. 

Rollins had teaching experience before taking over classes at the high school.

“I was a supplemental instructor at St. Louis Community College for a Fundamentals of Chemistry class and I also tutored Organic Chemistry,” Rollins said.

Rollin’s ultimate goal is to teach chemistry to high school juniors and seniors.

“I want to become a teacher because I am an idealist,” Rollins said. “I want to leave the world a better place that what I came into.”
