Mr. Rodney Burdette

My name is Rodney Burdette, and I am teaching World History Honors and CP in the 9th Grade Academy. This is my 6th at Westside High School, and 7th year overall. I was born and raised here in Anderson. I am a 2006 graduate of Crescent High School, and a 2010 graduate of Erskine College in Due West, SC with a Bachelor's Degree in Social Studies and Secondary Education. 
I was married in July of 2018 to Makaela McCartha, who also teaches at Westside. She teaches Algebra I in the 9th Grade Academy and is the assistant varsity volleyball coach.
This year begins my 7th year as an assistant football coach. I am the wide receivers coach for the freshman football team. I am also working with the JV Boys Soccer team for the 2019 season. Go Rams!
This will also be my 5th year heading Fellowship of Christian Athletes. I was fortunate enough to be able to help get FCA started at Westside after an extended abscence, and am excited as this group continues to grow. Anyone interested, whether an athlete or not, I would invite to join us on Fridays at 7:30 in the AV room!
