Mr. Ragland

I am a 6th grade science teacher at Thompson Middle School.  I have been a teacher since 1999.  I have lived in Alabama my entire life.  I graduated from Bibb County High School.  Although I am a huge Alabama fan, I graduated from Auburn University.  I have taught all subjects in both 5th and 6th grade.

My wife, Stephanie, and I have three children adopted from China.  They are awesome and bring me so much joy.  I really enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, fishing, and going to Alabama football games.

I absolutely love teaching!  I really enjoy getting to know my students and my goal each year is to make a positive impact on their lives.  I am looking forward to a great year this year at TMS!
