About

MEHi there, my name’s Richard and I teach third grade at Mountain View Elementary. What I love about teaching elementary school is that I get to cover all the subjects myself. I do math, science, history, art, physical education, music, and everything else. I’m hoping this blog can take on the same feel of my elementary class. I want to write about anything and everything!

The whole reason I got in to teaching is that I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do. The thought of only being a biologist or only doing accounting every day just sounds awful to me. I find learning to be an absolute joy and I hope you do too!

Outside of teaching I also enjoy travelling with my wife and three kids. I’ve also recently taken an interest in gardening and, oddly enough, ballroom dancing. Don’t ask.

If you want to get in touch, no need to raise your hand, just shoot me a message using the contact form and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Happy learning!
