Hello all! My name is Kristen Richardson and I am a first-grade teacher at Woodland Elementary School. This is my 18th year of teaching and my 10th year at Woodland. I've taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. I'm looking forward to another exciting year! 

In addition to being your child's teacher, I'd love for you to know a little about me, outside of being Ms. Richardson. I'm a mother of two children. Blaire is 13 and Liam is 8. They LIGHT UP my whole life! All I do is for them. We also have two cats named Oreo and Domino. 

Secondly, I love music and all things artsy. I'm also a big NFL football fan...GO SAINTS! I enjoy going to see live music in my spare time, but I also love laid-back activities like listening to live music, shopping, watching movies, and just spending quality time with my kids. 

Last but not least, I'd like to share with you my personal mission statement as a teacher. I feel it encompasses how I truly feel about my profession: 

As a teacher, I want to ignite a passion for learning and self-confidence. I want to guide my students on a path of self-discovery, discovering their successes as leaders and learners.

I want to motivate my students to embrace the differences that make each of us unique, which contributes to being in a wonderfully diverse learning atmosphere.

I want to brighten each student’s day just by being myself, sharing what I know, and proving to them that happiness from within is essential.

I feel that I’m meant to serve as my student’s “lighthouse,” their guiding light on the path to leadership and living accordingly.

Through being the best teacher I can be and being a positive "tour guide" for my students, I feel I’ll be able to fulfill my personal mission.

As I stated above, I am eagerly looking forward to a fun-filled year! Let's set our expectations high and achieve success. We can do it!
