My name is Rachel Vinyard. I am in my second year of teaching Special Education here at Alvarado High School. I am the freshman basketball and varsity/JV softball coach.  GO INDIANS!


I graduated from Coppell High School in 2010. I then went on to play softball at The University of Texas at Arlington. I graduated in 2015 with a BS in Kinesiology, having certifications in both health science and special education.


On July 9th, 2016 I went from being Coach Forshaw to Coach Vinyard. My husband decided to become apart of the Alvarado Indian family, and is also teaching and coaching at the High School. We are currently living in Burleson and have adopted 3 beautiful cats from local animal shelters, Nolan (4), Toby (2), and Colby (1) . Adopt Don't Shop!
