Mr. M.D. Rich

Welcome back 8th graders and for the 7th graders welcome to Schofield Middle!

 I am Mr. Rich and 2020-2021 is my 14th year teaching middle school. I am really looking forward to helping our new 7th graders to learn about the world around us through Geography and for the 8th graders to explore South Carolina History through the new IGSCE Cambridge course. I hope we are able to meet in person at the beginning of the year but understand we may have to work through on-line or distance learning for awhile. We will still learn either way!

I am married to a wonderful lady from New Zealand and we have three grown children who all attended the University of South Carolina Aiken and earned Bachelors degree in Biology. Two of them are pursuing advanced degrees. 

In addition to teaching middle school, I am a retired Sergeant having proudly served 24 years in the United States Air Force and had the opportunity to travel to five continents. I also play music and enjoy playing with others. I look forward to lots of work and discussions through out the school year.
