Hola, yo soy Senor Jim Robidoux. I am starting my thirtieth year of teaching, and I love my job working with students! I teach Spanish 2 for 9th graders at Southview Middle School in Ankeny. I started teaching English in 1990 after working almost seven years in Airport Operations and Industrial Engineering with UPS. In 1996, I was hired to teach Spanish in Ankeny.
I have coached over twenty-eight seasons of public school basketball, cross country, soccer, bowling, and track and field. I am the Head 8th Grade Boys Cross Country Coach at Northview, the same coaching position that I enjoyed 2001-2005, and I coach the spring Jaguar Running Club for grades 4-7. I taught several years of driver education, and I have traveled to Spain and Mexico a dozen times with over 250 Ankeny students.
For fun away from school, I like to read, coach, run, ride bikes with Ankeny Bike Club, and play outside with fourth-grade son Jake and his buddies. Our family created and operated Robidoux Country Kennels from 2009-2015 on a farmstead just north of Ankeny. We have four kids, one grandson, and one granddaughter.
!Vamos! Let's go!
