New Faces at WHS Part 3: Stacy Rider

This is the third in our series of a new teacher profiles.

I interviewed Stacy Rider, a new CTE teacher who teaches intro to health and medical sciences, nutrition and wellness, and sports medicine. I asked her how it has been so far this school year. 

Q: Have you had a previous experience with teaching?

Rider: I taught for one year when I worked at a private school – Anatomy and Physiology.  But that was 3 years ago! I’m starting as a full time teacher now because my last job required working a lot of late nights and weekends and was hard to balance with family.

Q: How do you plan on becoming involved in the school beyond just teaching? 

Rider: I am a Licensed Athletic Trainer so I will help with providing Sports Medicine coverage for Waynesboro High School athletics.

Q: What has been challenging so far?

Rider: I’m trying to learn how to juggle lesson planning, managing a classroom, finding interesting material to help the students learn, and still learn everyone’s names!

Q: What’s been good and how is the relationship with other teachers? 

Rider: It’s been good! The other teachers have been very welcoming and helpful!  I’m looking forward to getting into a routine and getting to know everyone!

Q: What are you most excited about this year?

Rider: This new role is a new adventure.  I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone and hoping that the students will find these to be good classes.
