Mr. Robert Machado

I am an original bull.  I have been teaching 14 years total and the last 11 have been here at HRHS.  I helped open the school and have been the Men's Basketball coach since we opened.  I started my career in Marketing out in the workforce, but soon realized my place was in the classroom. 


In 2017 I took over a new role as Academy Coordinator of the Academy of Hospitality and Hospitality at Hickory Ridge High School.


In 2018 I started my new Role as Work Base Learning Coordinator for Hickory Ridge HS, Central Cabarrus High School, and both Early Colleges.
