Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Richardson

I graduated in 2002 from SMSU with a Biology Education Major. My Minnesota license includes Biology 7-12, Earth Science 9-12 and Middle School Science.  My teaching experience includes 4 years of substitute teaching, 2 years of 8th grade Physical Science in Colorado, 7 years of 7th and 8th Grade Science at Holy Redeemer School, and 5 years as the Science teacher at MATEC. 

I have four loving, smart, and beautiful daughters.  Two are adults and two are students at Marshall High School.  The family includes a bird, a cat, 2 dogs and 2 gerbils.  Yes, I love animals! I was born and raised in Colorado, therefore am a DIE HARD Denver Broncos fan.  Other than watching Denver play football, I enjoy any outdoor activity.  I especially love to garden, identify and watch birds, and camp. 

My calling for education came when I was a paraprofessional at Tracy Area Elementary.  Within my first week of that job, I KNEW EXACTLY what I needed to do with the rest of my life.  I absolutely love teaching, even when it is VERY HARD.  Know that my dedication to teaching extends to each and every student.
