Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Murray Zogg

I am a math teacher here at Smiths Station High School. This is my fourth-year teaching at Smiths Station but my 27th year overall in teaching. I have lived in Alabama for 8 years. The first 19 years of teaching were in the state of Kansas. I love it here in Alabama and especially here in Smiths Station. I have taught all types of math classes, physics, weightlifting, and team sports. I currently teach Algebra 1.

My current schedule is as follows:

1st Period:           Algebra 1

2nd Period:          Planning

3rd Period:           Algebra 1

4th Period:           Algebra 1

I currently coach wrestling, and I am the Executive Director of the Alabama Wrestling Coaches Association. I love sports and everything about them. I believe that sports teach young people things that can’t be taught in the classroom. Sports and education are perfect together. I have also coached football, track, and basketball in the past.

I have been happily married to my wife, Dawn, for 29 years. We have five children; Aubri (28), Carina (26), Amy (24), Thor (23), and JT (20). They are all great kids (actually now adults lol) and I am very proud of them. We also have 4 dogs; Colby, Bella, Bingo, and Roxi. They are also a big part of my family.
