Cherri Redd is the science teacher at Yavapai Accommodation School District. In 2018, Ms. Redd started the first Student Council that our school had ever had. She felt giving the students a voice in their education was important. When she is asked about working at our school, she states, “I love my job here!”.
Cherri graduated from Tarleton State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Education in 1986, and received a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Grand Canyon University in 2011.
She has taught in Arizona since 2003. Cherri also taught for three years in Hawaii. The subjects she has taught range from Agricultural Education, Biology, Earth Science, Physical Science, and Anatomy and Physiology. She feels that commitment at YASD to her students is her highest priority. She, along with the rest of the staff, believe that all students will succeed in their career choices and she aims to help them achieve those goals.
When Ms. Redd isn’t at school you can often find her out on the local horse trails or arenas with her wonderful horse she calls Bug. Riding has been a lifelong endeavor and she has competed in Western and English styles of riding, where she was in the top 20 youth in American Paint Horse competitions as a youngster. Lately she has tried her hand at Team Sorting, Barrels, and Pole Bending. She agrees with President Ronald Regan, “There's nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse.”
