My name is Aaron Rider and I grew up on a farm northwest of Columbus. I graduated from Southeast High School and then graduated from Pittsburg State University with a bachelor's degree in English Education. Later, I received a master's degree in Educational Leadership, also from Pitt State. I taught in Galena and then 16 years at CUHS before coming to Central. My favorite part of education is getting to know our students and helping them to be the best they can be. I enjoy a wide variety of sports, being outdoors, and spending time with my family. I look forward to a great year!
