Biography

My name is Tomás Rodriguez and I am the Spanish teacher here at StMCS. I was born and raised in La Paz, Bolivia and later moved to Lexington, Kentucky where I attended Christ the King Catholic Elementary and Middle School and graduated from Lexington Catholic High School. I then attended the University of Kentucky for undergrad and finished at Portland State University with a double major in Business Real Estate Finance and Jazz Composition. I have been teaching at StMCS since 2011 and I am also the head varsity boy's soccer coach at St. Michael-Albertville High School. I enjoy teaching piano, coaching and traveling with my family.
