Rick J. Rivard

  • Rick Rivard I am a graduate at Bemidji St. Univ., Secondary Ed. Social Studies; then Winona State Elem. Ed. and for the Trifecta a Master's at Univ. of  WI- Lacrosse in Sp. Ed.

    This will be my 27th year teaching (but who's counting?)  I have been the work experience coordinator for students who receive special education services for 12 years and also am the girls assistant soccer coach.  I also enjoy helping out each year with the Harding Senior Portfolio and Senior All-Knight Graduation Party.

    I am married, sorry you single women out there, for 32 years and have 2 children; Abbie 26 and Noelle 20.  Also I am a proud parent of Mango, a 9 year old Bichon.  I am a sports fanatic and love my Golden Gophers, Knights, Twins, Vikes, and T. Wolves.  I love to cook, grill, bocce ball, talk politics, read (my favorite author is James Michener) and watch good movies.   I still like to work-out but had to give up the long-distance running :( 

    Fun Fact: Both my wife and I have cardiac pacemakers, a His and Hers!

    I am proud to be a teacher/ coach at Harding High.  GO KNIGHTS!
