Hello! My name is Emily Rice. By day, I am the 11th and 12th grade English teacher, but by night (aka after school), I am the Speech Coach for the 2021 - 2022 Speech Season! I am excited for another year of amazing speeches; there is so much talent on our team, and we hope to expand it even more this year! I have been assisting in some way with Speech for the last 6 years, but I am always learning something new from the Speechies and other coaches! I can't wait for another great season!
Meet the Assistant coach: Kelly Sale Hello everyone, my name is Kelly Sale. It is hard to believe we are at the point of going back to school. Summer flew by, and I hope everyone had a great summer. I am a Para at the high school, as well as the costumer for Drama and Prom advisor. This is my first year as an assistant coach for Speech. I hope to be of help to the students, and that they each learn something new and have so much fun. Also, having the kids go to State would be great, as well.
