Mrs. Terri Richards
Welcome to my page. I teach Career and Technical Education, 7th and 8th grade and PLTW Gateway Engineering, 8th grade students for high school credit.
Many parents think I teach keyboarding and computer apps. While we do use computers to produce products, my classes are more about job skills, college readiness, and the investigation of possible career choices. Assignments are problem-based. We have a great time learning workplace skills and how to become responsible digital citizens.
My door is always open to you. We are a team, you, me, and your child.
I look forward to every day with your children.

have you heard? Fundamentals of Computer Science course is coming to Schimelpenig MS next school year!
This course is an engaging one-semester course that provides a foundation for a strong coding and computer science experience.

Students who complete this course will receive high school credit and grade points, which will be reflected on the student’s high school transcript.
