• Hello! My name is Milea Ray, and I am so excited to be teaching 8th grade Math this year. I grew up in Alabaster and am a 2016 Thompson graduate, so I cannot explain how excited I am to be back home! I went on to get my degree from Birmingham-Southern College, graduating there in 2020. I have always enjoyed Math and hope to help grow my students love for it as well. Along with teaching, I will also be coaching the 8th grade Volleyball team and hope to see some of you at our games! I cannot wait for a great year with you all. Go warriors!
