  • Hello!  My name is Sara Rishell and this is my 2nd year at Thompson High School.  I am also the Assistant Varsity Volleyball Coach.  I am originally from Smithsburg, Maryland which is a small town outside of the Baltimore and DC area.

    I received my Bachelors in English Language Arts with a concentration in Literature from UAB in 2015, and my Masters Degree in Secondary Education, English Language Arts in 2017.  During this time, I was also on the Volleyball team and Beach Volleyball team at UAB.  I have also been a member of the USA Collegiate National Team for Indoor Volleyball.  In my spare time, I enjoy competing in Beach Volleyball around the US!

    I have 3 older brothers, 2 nieces, and 2 nephews (one of which is pictured with me).  I visit Maryland every chance I get!

    Go Warriors!
