Hello! I'm Mr. Richardson, and I'm excited to be joining the family at North Marion High School!
This will be my sixth year as an educator, with my previous experience coming from Lake County where I served as a language arts teacher and athletic director for Tavares Middle School.
As a student in public schools I attended Leesburg High School where I thrived under the mentorship of a few great coaches and teachers. When I graduated from high school I chose to pursue a career in education, attending the University of Central Florida where I majored in Secondary English Language Arts Education. #CHARGEON
In my first two years as a teacher I discovered that I have a passion for making the people around me better, which led me to begin my master's in Educational Leadership with the goal of becoming a principal. Outside of school I really enjoy the small things in life. Spending time with friends, fishing, playing video games, reading, and volunteering at church are all things I look forward to. My fiancée and I are also in the process of planning our wedding!
This school year will be unlike any other we have experienced so far. Families, students, and school staff will all have to work together in order to make it a success.
That being said, I'm committed to making sure that my students:
1. Stay safe and healthy
2. Have opportunities to thrive
3. Have equitable access to a premier education
4. Find opportunities to get a little better at something each day
It's going to be a great year at North Marion High School!
