RHS Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to YISD’s High School Teacher Of The Year, our very own Ranger Theater teacher and Girl’s Head Basketball Coach, Mr. Stephen Solis!! We love you, Coach and are so proud of you! You deserve this win for all that you do for RHS!!

Solis, who holds a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, is a theater arts and computer science teacher and coach at Riverside High School. As a child growing up in Corpus Christi, Solis remembers how his father took night classes and went from working as a middle-school janitor to a P.E. teacher and coach.

“He never let anything stop him from pursuing his dream,” Solis said. “I was inspired to make him proud and lead a life where I could make a difference in the lives of others, just like he did.”
