Wayland Crowder

Hello and welcome to another school year.
My name is Wayland Crowder and I teach 6th grade Science and Robotics & Engineering I & II. I also coach 8th-grade football, 7th-grade basketball, and Track. I am originally from Dallas and yes, I love The Dallas Cowboys! I’ve lived in the Houston area for over 20 years and I am a proud University of Houston Alum. This year marks my 19th year in education. I started my career in the Houston Independent School District where I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade science. This will be my 15th year in Fort Bend and 4th year at Thornton Middle School. Before teaching, I worked for the Houston Rockets/Comets in the marketing division. I am married with two sons. My youngest son is a Thornton alum.
