Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Jimmy Rider

I am very excited to be joining the CTE-Health Science team at Azle High School this year! 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 11 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 2020-21, 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 is a Certified Microbiologist and is the Science Learning Lab Manager at TCC, and we have two kids, Emma and Case.
