Hello my name is Tricia Rhyner, a middle school and high school teacher here in cardinal country. I am blessed to be part of this district with my husband Kurt (also a teacher here in cardinal country) and two beautiful children.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Platteville, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Middle and Secondary Level Education, majoring in biology and minoring in natural science. I also received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at that time.
I have taught 17 years; 14 years in the School District of Loyal and 3 years here in the Thorp School District. I am an inquiry based teacher, so be prepared to do some thinking in my classes.☺ I currently teach 8th grade Science, Biology, Advanced Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Medical Terminology a CVTC transcripted course.
For the past 3 years, I have been involved in Thorp Softball and the Thorp Ball Club as a support person for fundraising. Also, I am the National Honor Society Advisor for Thorp.
When I am not a school, I am supporting the activities of my children and their peers, which puts me back at school.☺ Volleyball, Basketball, Track, Softball, Football, School Play, Mock Trial, Mathletes, Forensics, Quiz Bowl, and Solo and Ensemble are a few of the activities that keep me and my family busy.
I am looking forward to the new school year; working and meeting with students, parents, and staff.
Go! Go! Cardinals!
Mrs. Rhyner - Science Teacher
