Ms. Richardson has 15 years teaching experience and has taught in DoDEA schools since 2003. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Oriental and African Languages and Literature, and concentration in Japanese. She received her teaching certification from the University of Illinois at Springfield and anticipates receiving her Master's of Education Degree in Educational Technology in the summer of 2008, from Michigan State University. Prior to teaching in DoDEA schools, Ms. Richardson taught special education at Manor Middle School in Manor, Texas and at history at New Braunfels Middle School in New Braunfels, Texas. She also taught Academic and Advanced U.S. History, Government and Economics at Clements High School in Sugarland, Texas.

Ms. Richardson's message is "Think of the Possibilities". Every day teachers interact with, affect, and are affected by millions of students, making and strengthening connections that will last a lifetime, including some connections that might not be immediately apparent. Think of the possibilities - education, DoDDS, our schools - these are vast resources where anything is possible. Her principal states, "It takes a special kind of teacher to both realize there is something missing and to have the wherewithal to know exactly what is needed to remedy the situation."
