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!
