Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Sidney Rhodes and I teach iCivics and ProTeam at Chapin Middle School. Prior to working in Chapin, I was a Physical Education teacher in Richland School District Two. I have enjoyed the switch from a gym to a classroom, and still get my fair share of teaching physical activity. I am the head track and field coach for the boys and girls varsity program at Chapin High School and I coach outside linebackers for the varsity and junior varsity football programs.
My path to teaching is not a traditional one. After Graduating from the University of South Carolina, where I was a student athlete, I worked in the upstate as a Sports Performance Director. After seeing the impact and development I was able create with young athletes I decided to pursue a degree in teaching. I gained my Maters of Art in Teaching from Winthrop University where I was a Graduate Assistant in their Health and Sports Performance Department.
