Ms. Richards

Hello everyone! My name is Ms. Richards and I teach second grade here at Matteson Elementary. I student taught second grade, then I taught Kindergarten my first year and now I’m back in second grade! This is my 4th year teaching and my 1st year in the district. I am a PROUD product of Matteson School District 162. I attended Arcadia, Indiana, and Huth. I graduated from Grand Canyon University with my Bachelors and Western Illinois University with my Masters’. I am currently in school for my doctorate. Outside of school, I also own my own skincare business. While I do not have any children of my own, I have all of my lovely students (previous and current) and I have 5 godchildren! My other favorite things include any and all things beauty, traveling, Disney, Target shopping sprees, and community service with my sorority, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated. 

The best way to get ahold of me is the ClassDojo. It's on my computer and my phone, so I have access majority of the time. You may also email me
