                                                        Welcome to J.E.Richards Middle School located in Lawrenceville, Georgia
                                                       I will be your 6th grade teacher for the 2010/2011 school year. Have a great first year in Middle School!

 Richards Middle School is located in Lawrenceville, Georgia and shares the same block with Cedar Hill Elementary School.  Cedar Hill and Richards also share the same mascot name which is the "Black Knights." I am very proud to be part of Richards.  The school as a whole made AYP(Adequate Yearly Progress) for the 2009-2010 school year.  The "team" (the students, teachers, parents, and school staff) worked very hard to prepare for the CRCT exams. We are very excited to have made AYP, and can not express how important it is for "the Team" to continue working hard to make AYP in the coming years.

I have been an educator working in Middle Schools for ten years. I love and enjoy my job very much. I love my job because as a special education teacher, I am able to work with students who have learning disabilities that make it difficult for them to learn at the same pace as other students.  There is a paraprofessional with me in the class who assists me with the students.  We work with students on a one on one basis depending on the need of each student. By doing this, we are able to provide them with the extra support they need to perform well in all of their academic areas.  We promote academic success and social growth by being good listeners when they are in need, and providing discipline when needed. I have a ten year old son and a fiance that I love to spend time with.  I enjoy going to the movies, planting, and going to church.  I attend Marvelous Light Christian Ministries which is located in Douglasville, Georgia.

I teach sixth grade special education EBD students. Because the students I teach are in a self-contained environment (they stay in the same class room with the same teacher all day).  I am responsible for teaching them: Language arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies.  I know it sounds like a lot of work, but it isn't as difficult as it sounds.  Most of the students are on the same academic level, therefore, I am able to teach the whole class four different subjects at a much slower pace. Kidsnumbers.com is one of the resources that we will use to help the students stay on task with the curriculum for this year.  Please tour the website at your convenience.
