John Brandon Ullrich

English 8th Grade


Welcome to My Class

My name is John Brandon Ullrich. I am entering my 3rd year of teaching. I am excited to be here at SMS. I have loved all the years that I have spent here. I am a graduate of SHS from 1994. I have a BA in Psychology from the University of Memphis, and a MDiv from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. I came to teaching after working in the medical field for half of my life. I used to preach at the church at the corner of Rasco and Air Ways. I love the kids in this school and the surrounding neighborhood. 

I am married to my wonderful wife: Laura who is the Children's Minister at DeSoto Hills Baptist Church. I have two crazy but wonderful kids: Addisyn (9) and Nolan (5). I love football, baseball, and softball. I love to read, play with my kids and family, and work out. I am an active member of DeSoto Hills Baptist Church, where my wife is the Children's Minister.
