Dear TMS Families, 


My name is Mr. Rock. I am a seventh grade science teacher here at Thompson Middle School. I have always been involved in the sciences and teaching since college and worked in the field of environmental planning and management before becoming a teacher. My interest in science brought me to places like Hawai'i and Indonesia. Here in Rhode Island I am also involved with many local environmental groups such as the Aquidneck Land Trust and Clean Ocean Access. 


In the past, I served as Dean at Rogers High School, coached the Rogers Sailing Team and also taught Horticulture, Essentials of Computer Technology and Earth Science.


This year I will be posting quarterly news letters as another way to keep you updated on your student's learning. Please click on the Quarter 1 Newsletter Tab for an update. 


Mr. Rock
