Ms. Tarita Rhimes

It is my PASSION to serve and protect...students, teachers, and parents.  Hello, my name is Tarita Rhimes and I am the Assistant Principal here at Wydown Middle School.  I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary and Middle school education with a minor in Computer Science.  I also have a Master's and Educational Specialist degrees in Educational Administration.  I am currently pursuing my Doctoral Degree in Educational Administration.
I am originally from Milwaukee, WI where I taught for three years, then I moved to Louisiana where I taught for two years, and my final move to Missouri where I taught for five years.  Through my teaching experiences, I have had the opportunity to teach first through fifth grades.  In my last position, I served as a teacher leader in my building as well as the "tech support" for all testing software as well as a facilitator for technology and STEM professional developments.
As a lifelong educator who recognizes the many and diverse learning styles of students and teachers, I will ensure that I will provide and support professional development opportunities that enable everyone to build on their knowledge of the whole child.
