Mrs. Terri Richards
Welcome to my page. I teach Career and Technical Education, 7th and 8th grade and PLTW Gateway Engineering and Fundamentals of Computer Science to 8th graders for 9th grade elective.
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. Instead of using technology, we are learning how to make technology. 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.
