About Ms. Richards...

I am excited to begin another year at Edison Middle School!  First, let me tell you about myself.  I graduated with a B.A. in Communications from UCLA before I went to UC Irvine to earn my first teaching credential as an English teacher.  For two years, I taught high School English in Huntington Beach and Manhattan Beach, and I loved it!  Later, I earned a teaching credential and a Master's Degree in Special Education and a Specialization in teaching History.
I have experienced other careers as well.  I worked in the entertainment industry for a few years, and I was a real estate agent for several years.  I was also a nanny, tutor, and student advocate.  My heart has always been in working with young people, especially in education.  I am lucky to be a part of this incredible Edison family, and I look forward to another great year!
