     Hello, my name is Samantha Richards, and I will be teaching your child math this year. I will be teaching in a trio with Mrs. April Davidson (Science) and Mrs. Greer Finley (ELA).

      I am originally from the Mississippi Gulf Coast. After graduating from USM, my husband, Justin, and I moved to the Jackson area. I taught in Clinton Public Schools for six years and Rankin County for one year. I have taught 3rd grade math and science, 5th grade all subjects and Reading and Math Interventions. I was at Mannsdale Upper for the past 4 years. This will be my first year at MAUE, and I feel incredibly blessed to be part of such an awesome school and community.

     Justin and I live in the heart of Madison with our 8 year old daughter (Olivia) who will be joining me at MAUE in the 3rd grade, 3 year old son (Samuel), and our Labradoodle (Lambeau). We are active members of Broadmoor in Madison. At Broadmoor, we volunteer in the Greenhouse area and are active members of our life group. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the beach, attending sporting events, traveling, and spending time with my family. During the fall, you can find my family in Hattiesburg cheering on our Golden Eagles (SMTTT!!!).

    I am looking forward to another wonderful year. Please feel free to contact me at any time. My email is samantha.richards@madison-schools.com. I am excited to get know you and your family.
