    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 
    Education:  I got my Bachelor's Degree from SDSU and my Master's Degree in Reading Specialization from National University.
