Mrs. Patricia Richardson


Welcome to my Classpage!


I am very proud of the fact that I have been in the field of teaching for over 20 years and all but five of those years have been in the District of West Orange.  I very much 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 love of the teaching profession was instilled in all of us at a very early age and we learned very early on the power of the teaching and learning process.   As a Grade 8 English Language Arts teacher 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. 

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!
