My name is Rick Rasmussen. Most people call me Coach Ras, pronounced Raz. I am in my first year teaching English at North Oconee HS and am also the head boys' basketball coach. Previously I worked at Newton HS in Covington, GA for 21 years, teaching English and coaching basketball and golf. My family and I have lived in Oconee County for two years, and I am very excited to be a part of the Oconee County family. Go Titans!
