Mr. Rice

Hello My Name Is Josh Rice!

Welcome to my class website!  On this website you will find many useful links and information related to our Spanish class.  Learning a different language is an amazing experience that can open you up to a whole new world of culture, people and possibilities!

About myself...

I was born in Chandler, Arizona before moving at a young age to Highlands Ranch, CO.  I went to school here in Douglas County at Cresthill Middle School before graduating with an IB diploma at Douglas County High School.  I earned my BA degree in K-12 Education and Spanish at the University of Kansas and Metropolitan State University of Denver where I was an All-Conference player on the lacrosse team.  During my time in college I also studied at La Universidad de Cádiz in Cádiz, Spain.  I started my teaching career here at Rocky Heights in 2016 first as a student teacher and a year later as a licensed teacher.  I teach Spanish levels 1A and 1B and starting in 2020 I will be taking over our Adaptive PE class with our SSN department.  I am an avid sports fan and competitor and this year will be coaching Cross-country, 8th grade Girls Volleyball, 8th grade Boys Basketball and Track and Field.  In my free time I love to travel, read, exercise, ski and spend time with my amazing girlfriend and our dog Laila.  I am extremely passionate about teaching Spanish and coaching and I am excited to spend time with all of my amazing students!
