Mrs. Terri Richards
Welcome to my page. I teach Career and Technical Education, 7th and 8th grade and PLTW Gateway Engineering to 8th grade students for high school credit. It is my honor to coach the FIRST Tech Challenge Robotics team. This is a national competition and is limited to 7th and 8th grade students here at Schimelpfenig Middle School. Students can continue their journey at the high school and senior high level.
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.
These are days students can come and make up any missed work or work that needs finishing.
Mondays PM and Wednesdays AM or by appointment.
Test makeup on Fridays by appointment for AM or PM
