Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Michael Richards

Hello! My name is Mr. Richards and I am teaching the following courses for the 2020-21 school year:

6th Grade Physical Science

8th Grade Introduction to Robotics



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 seventh year teaching, and my seventh 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 three pets (two dogs and a cat).


This year with Distance Learning, I will be holding office hours daily from 2:30pm - 4:00pm. You can always drop by my office hours, or if you would prefer an individual or family meeting, please email me and we can set up a online meeting!
