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 grew up playing soccer and played for ten years. My primary position was goalie. 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 in the classroom!
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 eighth year teaching, my fifth year at Meadow. Go Indians!
