Monday, November 27th, 2023, marked the beginning of a new chapter in Tyler Matlock’s career as he began his first day as an administrator at Canyon Ridge High School.

Mr. Matlock has worked in the Twin Falls School District for the last ten years, spending his previous six years as a principal at Oregon Trail Elementary School. An opportunity arose when Canyon Ridge High School made changes in administration, to which Mr. Matlock requested his transfer.

Mr. Matlock has had experience teaching at both middle and high school grade levels and wanted to transfer back to high school education. 

“I was open to whatever opportunity came along,” Mr. Matlock responded. He remarked that in his career, he has made a point of keeping his options open. 

 “I look at teaching and school administration, and all the jobs at a school as if they fit under the umbrella of an ‘educator,” and I always knew I wanted to be an educator, whatever that meant,” said Mr. Matlock.

Since beginning his position as a vice principal, Mr. Matlock has taken on the responsibilities of our current principal, Mr. Scott Thompson. Vice Principal Matlock explained that he and Mr. Gilbert, our second vice principal, share the disciplinary action and teacher evaluations. At the same time, Mr. Matlock also manages tardies and the consequences that come alongside them.

Mr. Matlock’s primary goal is to help the students of Canyon Ridge succeed. “I’ve got kids that I want to help, lists of kids who I want in class, and I want them to succeed,” said Mr. Matlock. “That’s my main goal right there, and it always is, to help kids succeed where they haven’t before.”

As for any separate goals for the school, Mr. Matlock explained that his primary goals are to learn more about Canyon Ridge and its community, help Mr. Thompson, and contribute with well-informed ideas. 

“I don’t know enough about the school just yet, I want to continue to learn before beginning big projects”

He plans to become more involved in assisting students to learn and grow and contributing to the betterment of Canyon Ridge for as long as possible.

“When I see the school at its most ideal state, I see every kid that starts at Canyon Ridge getting what they need,” Mr. Matlock explained. He noted that he wants all students at Canyon Ridge to have an excellent high school experience and applauded the school for its great job in the past of giving students the opportunities they need for the future.
