My name is Jerod Rye, and I am a teacher and a coach at Burnet High School. I am in my second stint in Burnet. I taught and coached here from 1999-2006, moved away for eight years, and have been back since 2014.
I teach Professional Communications (Speech) to kids of all grade levels, and I also teach an Adaptive PE class. In our Adaptive PE class, we partner able bodied kids with kids that have special needs to help them accomplish goals and have fun. In my speech class our one goal is to become more comfortable communicating face to face with other people.
I am the Offensive Coordinator for the Football team, the head Powerlifting Coach, and also coach hurdlers for the track team. Im very proud of the successes of all 3 of those groups in the past several years. We have competed in the playoffs of all of those sports. We had 2 girls make it to the State Meet in powerlifting, and had a hurdler finish 2nd in the State in the 110 hurdles in 2017. Seeing Bulldogs and Lady Dawgs be successful on and off the field gives me tremendous pride to think i get to be a small part of it.
I have been married to my wife, Stephanie, for 19 years, and she is awesome. We have 2 great children. My son, Cade, is a freshman at BHS, and our daughter, Lainey, is in 7th grade at the middle school. We spend a lot of time outside of the school day watching our kids participate is sports, including, football, volleyball, basketball, cross country, and track.
My family loves it in Burnet.
