Hello! My name is Cole Wilder and I am extremely excited to begin my first year at Belle Heth teaching 6th grade English. I am coming to Radford City Schools after teaching for 7 years at James Madison Middle School in Roanoke, VA. I am looking forward to becoming a part of the Bobcat family!
I committed to graduate from George Wythe High School in 2006. I also committed to graduate from Radford University in 2010, where I was a member of the men's NCAA basketball team. As a teacher, I am always looking for creative and innovative ways to engage my students. One of my favorite ways to teach are through rap music videos. I was inspired to create these raps and videos by my 6th grade social studies teacher Mr. Davis, who used to bring his guitar to class and sing history songs. My YouTube page, UsHistoryRaps, contains several rap videos about reading, writing, and history. I am so excited to begin working on the next big video with the students at Belle Heth.
I have no doubt that the 2018-2019 school year is going to be the best year yet. Go Bobcats!
