Mr. Josh Mander

I began teaching in Valley View School District in 2019 as an 8th grade Math and ELA Special Education teacher at Jane Addams Middle School. In 2020, I made the transition to 9th Grade Algebra at RHS. I will also serve as a Assistant Football Coach on the sophmore and varsity levels while at RHS.

Prior to this, I was a Assistant Coach with the University of St. Francis football team from 2016-2019. During this time I worked towards my Masters Degree in Special Education.  I also attended USF from 2009-2013, earning my Bachelors of Arts in Mass Communication and playing on the football team. I was a captain and All MSFA Conference selection in 2012 and 2013.
