Degrees and Certifications:
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 14 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 2022-23, I will be teaching Medical Terminology and Principles of Health Science.
In my spare time, I enjoy restoring classic cars, woodworking, and spending time outside. My wife Holley is a Certified Microbiologist and is the Director of Supplemental Instruction at TCC NW Campus in Fort Worth, and we have two kids, Emma and Case.
