Mrs. Patricia Richardson
Welcome to my Classpage!
I am very excited to be starting my 22nd year in the field of teaching and 17th year in the District of West Orange. I absolutely love what I do as I come from a family of teachers. Both my parents are retired teachers, my older brother is a 5th Grade Math teacher and my younger sister teaches Kindergarten. The teaching profession was instilled in all of us at a very early age and we would not have it any other way. Currently I am teaching three sections of English Language Arts 8 and one section of Honors English Language Arts 8. It is my hope that my students will walk away from my class with a sound understanding for the active reading and writing process and be able to use the necessary tools to be successful in the world around them.
Outside of school I enjoy being with family and friends, reading, gardening, scrapbooking, traveling, photography, the theatre, and playing with my dog, Madison. I look forward to a very enjoyable and exciting year with my students. Please feel free to contact me. Email is the BEST! Together we can make GREAT things happen! Here's to a wonderful year!
