Mr. Robin Oelrich
Welcome to 7th grade English Language Arts!
Dr. Seuss once wrote, “"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
Life has taken me many places. As a child, I lived in Germany and Italy which allowed me to travel around Europe. I have also been to Central America and hope to return one day soon. I enjoy learning, seeing new places, and trying new things. For this reason, travel has always been something I loved.
I am the girls’ soccer coach for my fifth season and the first season being the boys' soccer coach I grew up playing soccer and played for ten years. My primary position was goalie. Coaching is one of my favorite things! I am also a black belt in Taekwondo and compete a few times a year. I enjoy the exercise and competition of sports and look forward to working with your children both in the classroom and on the soccer field!
I graduated from Westlake High School in Maryland. Then, spent time fumbling through life before I finally buckled down and complete my education. I went to college at Johnston County Community College and the continued on to North Carolina State University. I currently reside in Clayton with my wife, seven children, two dogs, and a cat. This is the start of my seventh year teaching, my fourth year at Meadow. Go Indians!

Parents and Guardians As a means of supporting our families with using Lexia Reading at Home, an important tool our students use to help increase their reading capacity, the company is offering “FREE” webinars just for parents and guardians who are at home helping to fill in the gaps during times. In these webinars, Professional Learning Facilitators will instruct families of K-8 learners on how to: Get set up and started (your student should already have an account). Support children's learning at home. Track progress and extend learning.
We realize that some of you may not have internet and/or devices or may prefer paper copies, so we will be preparing instructional packets for our students. Families can pick up the packets on Friday, March 27th at 11:30am by the back of the cafeteria.
