Ms. Rinehart comes to UA via Eastern Europe where she spent the two years teaching at ASK--the American School of Kosova. There she taught freshman and sophomore English and coached an international debate program. Prior to that she developed a nationally ranked debate program at Kansas City Central, or KCC as they were known on the national circuit.
Currently, Ms. Rinehart and her sister have custody of two boys and are actively involved in their competitive swim program and sports and academics. When not at UA or timing at a swim event, JR enjoys international travel, rehabing homes, cooking Julia Child's recipes, and staying warm in the winter.
