Mr. Michael Richards
Hello! My name is Mr. Richards and I am teaching the following courses for the 2019-20 school year:
6th Grade Aerospace II (Period 1)
8th Grade Introduction to Robotics (Periods 2, 6 and 7)
Computer Applicaitons (Period 3)
8th Grade Foundations (Period 5)
I went to school in the Roseville school district and graduated High School in 2007. I then went to the University of Minnesota and got a degree in Biology, graduating in 2012. I took a year off to work as a reading teacher, a coach and an after school care assistant from 2012-13. In the spring of 2013 I was admitted to the Graduate Teaching Program at the University of Minnesota. After completing the program in 2014, I took a job at Farnsworth Aerospace (the Home of Future Leaders).
This is my sixth year teaching, and my sixth year working with sixth graders. Previously, I've taught 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade science, as well as Meteorology here at Farnsworth.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy working with my hands- working on my house, fixing my car, etc. I also love being outside, and spend a lot of time fishing during the summers and when we have time off of school. I also have four pets (two dogs and two cats).
