Meet our Assistant Principal

Mr. MercerHi! My name is Ronald Mercer. I grew up in Brazoria and graduated from Columbia High School. I then started my college career at Brazosport Community College, which I earned an Associate's Degree, and soon transferred to University of Houston - Clear Lake, which I attained my Bachelor's of Science Degree. A few years later I attended Lamar University earning a Master's Degree in Educational Administration. In 2008, I began my educational career in Columbia-Brazoria ISD as a teacher, and ended there in 2015. I then started teaching at Bess Brannen Elementary right before coming to O.A. Fleming. I am very excited to start the school year of 2016-2017 at O.A. Fleming as the Assistant Principal. I know by working together we can and will accomplish GREAT things! I am blessed with three beautiful children, Ronald, Emmalyn, and Addilyn. My wife is also an educator here in BISD!
