Mr. Rob Woods was appointed as James River's Substitute Coordinator beginning in the fall of 2019. In this capacity, he arranges for class coverage whenever a teacher is unable to be in his/her classroom.
Rob graduated from the University of Wales in 2001 where he received his Bachelor's degree in education. Since moving to the United States in 2006, he has taught children of all ages as a substitute teacher within the Shoreline School District in Seattle, and he spent four years as a middle school science teacher in a charter school in Albuquerque, NM.
Rob took an extended break from teaching when his son arrived into the world, followed two years later by his daughter. It has been his privilege to take care of his family while his wife finished her medical training and began practicing. Now, with both children attending the school, Rob is excited to join the James River family.
Rob's other passion in life is soccer and Liverpool Football Club in particular. He has over 30 years playing experience and a decade's worth of coaching. Rob will be coaching the seventh and eighth grade soccer team beginning in fall of 2019 and looks forward to sharing his love of the game with them and helping them all to fulfill their potential.
