Mrs. Judith Rickett

Hello! I am excited to be teaching the art of Algebra to middle school students! I come from a varied background which includes many life experiences that I use in my classroom to help educate the students.  I am an Air Force veteran having served 9 years as a russian linguist.  This position allowed me to travel to England, Germany, and Italy as well as around the United States.  While in the military, I never stopped learning.  I took classes with colleges that were available on the base.  I joined a sail plane club in England and flew gliders in my off time when able.   My trip to Italy allowed me to visit Venice, Rome, San Marino, and Trieste.  I jumped out of an airplane in Arizona and enjoyed riding my motorcycle through the desert southwest visiting sites such as Tombstone and other places where the cowboys roamed. I attended the University of Arizona, studying computer and electrical engineering.  My family settled in Florida and I attended the University of Florida.  I changed majors and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Animal Sciences, concentration Animal Biology.  I worked in the administrative side of a veterinary clinic and thoroughbred farm.  I went into teaching with Marion County, starting at the high school level where I taught Chemistry, Physics, Financial Algebra, and Algebra I. 

In my spare time, I enjoy riding my motorcycle (I call it wind therapy), fishing (saltwater and freshwater), and reading.  

I am excited to be a part of the Falcon family and love teaching at the middle school level!
