Meet the CRHS Athletic Training Staff

Shauna Woody

I’m a Northside graduate, where I was on the first fastpitch softball team and was a student trainer. I was a student trainer at Baylor University for football and women’s soccer. I volunteered for women’s basketball and Track events. I graduated from Texas Woman’s University in 2009. I started my career in the District as a substitute while I finished my degree and teacher cert program through Quality Act. I taught Science at William James Middle School, where I was a coach for football and the first girl’s soccer team. I’ve been a trainer at Carter since 2013 and have attended Regional and State wrestling representing the District’s wreslters for the last three years. I’m planning to graduate with a Masters in May, and complete a Doctorate at Baylor like I should have done the first time! It’s all about perseverance and lifelong learning.
