Meet the Teacher Profile
Introduction: My name is Jan Richards. I started my career over 30 years ago. I have taught grades 3, 4, 5, and 6. I started at La Presa Elementary and then moved to Sweetwater Springs where I taught multi-age 4th/5th for several years. While there, I was part of a large intermediate musical production. During the last few years, I actually wrote and directed the performances. My favorite subjects to teach are Language and History. I moved to LMAAC and absolutely love this place! Its positivity is contagious. :)
Favorite Quote: "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." - Albert Einstein
