Welcome to Cedar Ridge High School! I'm looking forward to teaching you/your child this year. My name is Marlo Rockhold. I have been teaching for 25 years. I have spent that entire time teaching English and English preAP/TAG, although I also taught Theatre Arts early in my career. As a teacher, I enjoy getting to know both students and parents and being a strong resources for your growth throughout the year. A solid 9th grade years lays a wonderful foundation for success throughout your high school career.

In addition to being obsessed with all things education, I am also a mother of one very opinionated 11 year old girl and a very silly furry child. My husband is a martial artist who owns a business in the Austin area. I am a lover of all things beach-related, and I am very proud to call Corpus Christi my hometown: I was born there and lived there until I was 30, minus the six months I spent living in Spain when I was in college. I am also a lover of all things astronomy-related (including science fiction) and am often found in my backyard, searching for faraway galaxies, nebula, etc. through my amazing little telescope.

It is easiest to contact me via email, as I my response can be more timely. I look forward to a fabulous year with my new Raiders!
