Mr. Rodrigo A. Diaz

My name is Rodrigo A. Diaz. I am the EC Special Education Teacher.  I teach various subjects like English 1 through 4, Biology, American History 1 and 2. This is my 3rd year at Wallace-Rose Hill High School. I try to mentor and coach these young men and women so they can be productive members of our society. 

I retired in 2018 from the United States Marine Corps after 20 years and 3 months of active duty.  My classes are designed to push both the girls and the boys to do their best.  

Gunnery Sergeant Diaz deployed to Iraq in 2003, 2005, 2007 combat operations for Operation Iraq Freedom, Iraq Resolve, and New Dawn (Declassified).

Also, deployed in Operation Bright Star in Cario, Egypt.


Through my time in the Marine Corps, I have traveled to Okinawa, Japan. Germany, England, Iraq, Kuwait, Ireland, Spain, and Hawaii.


I am the head coach for the Men's Varsity and Men's JV soccer team. I am proud to call myself a WRH Bulldog.
