Ralph Chandler Middle
8th Grade ELA
Simpsonville, SC
I am in my 16th year of teaching middle school. I spent many of these years teaching 6th grade social studies, and I adore ancient history. In fact, I led a group of students and parents to Italy and Greece this past summer, and I have a school trip planned to the British Isles this summer. In my current school, I have also taught 6th and 7th English Language arts but now teach 8th. I am also the English department chair for my school. I am married to my high school sweetheart (We even graduated from Clemson together) and we have three great kids.
