Mr. Alec Rigik

¡Hola! My name is Alec Rigik, and this is my second year teaching Spanish 1 and 2 at RHS. I coach Speech and Girls' Volleyball, I am so happy to call VVSD my home!

As a student, I attended Harold L. Richards High School, then went on to graduate from Illinois State University in 2018 with a double-major in Spanish and Secondary English Education. While at ISU, I had the opportunity to study Spanish in Granada, Spain, where I realized just how powerful of an experience immersing oneself in another culture can be. Returning to the school this year with all of us in-person, I am more excited than ever to connect with our students. I hope you are as excited as I am as our students and I explore language, identity, and culture within el mundo hispanohablante.

In my spare time, I love being active, reading, watching movies, exploring new music, theatre, and finding new ways to be active in the outdoors. ¡Anticipamos un semestre fantástico juntos!
