Coach Alex Oliver

Hello, I'm Coach Oliver and I am one of the physical education teachers at East Ridge Middle School. This is my second year at ERMS and I've been teaching for a total of six years. I grew up in East Ridge and attended Chattanooga School for the Arts and Science from K-12th grade. I went away to Johnson City to attend college at East Tennessee State University. Upon completion of my bachelors degree, I came back to Chattanooga and began teaching. Soon after I started my Masters degree in Kinesiology at Tennessee Tech University and finished in 2016. I plan to go back and get my Doctoral degree as soon as possible.

For the 2018-2019 school year, I will be the head Football, Basketball, and Track & Field coach. This should keep my schedule pretty busy for the entire school year. I'm always looking for new ways to engage my students physically and teach the importance of good health on the human body.

My number one hobby is traveling. Every chance I get, I go somewhere I haven't been before. I love traveling into the unknown and pushing my limits. By doing so, I've learned more about myself and other cultures  around the world. "Don't listen to what they say, Go see" is one of my favorite quotes and is used quite often in my classes. 

If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
