“I have a long line of teachers in my genealogy, my grandfather was a teacher and my uncles were teachers.” As a child Rick Hall had many great teachers and they inspired him to become one himself. Mr. Hall graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a Bachelor’s degree in Education and a Masters in Building Administration from Fort Hays State University. He has been married for 36 years to his wife, Nicole Hall, and has 4 grown children.

He was shocked when he was called by Superintendent Kennedy, to step down from being a principal to become a regular teacher. “I actually didn’t apply for the job,  Superintendent Kennedy called me out of the blue and asked me to consider teaching here.”

Mr. Hall has 12 years of experience as a teacher, and brings a love of rural kids, calling them some of the best he has met. With experience comes wisdom. “Do not be afraid about life, fear is a reaction and courage is an option. Have courage and drive on.”
