Mr. Jimmy Rider

I am very excited to be with the CTE-Health Science team at Azle High School! I am a graduate of TWU-Denton with a BS in Kinesiology and earned an AAS from the Physical Therapist Assistant program at Amarillo College in 2009. I have been a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant for 12 years in a variety of settings and look forward to sharing that experience with those students at AHS who are interested in entering the healthcare field!

In 2021-22, I will be teaching Medical Terminology, Principles of Health Science, and Health Science Clinicals. In my spare time, I enjoy restoring classic cars, woodworking, and spending time outside. My wife Holley is a Certified Microbiologist and is the Science Learning Lab Manager at TCC in Fort Worth, and we have two kids, Emma and Case.
