I am Chris Richards an administrator for the Burlington Community School District.
I received my undergrad from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa. I graduated with a elementary education degree and coaching minor. I moved to Lancaster, California to begin my teaching career as a sixth grade teacher. I spent seven wonderful years working with sixth graders. During that time I received my Master's Degree in Administration. I was hired by a neighboring school district to become an assistant principal. I had the opportunity to work with a very diverse population and enjoyed everyday there. I then had the opportunity to return to Iowa to become the principal at Graettinger-Terril Community School District. During my first year there Teresa Alesch and I had the chance to visit Newell-Fonda and there new one to one program. We worked with the school board to purchase laptop computers for grades 5-12. This is the beginning to an exciting adventure which I hope continues to grow.
After serving Graettinger-Terril School District for three tremendously innovating years and I moved onto a larger school district and opposite side of the state in Burlington, Iowa. We are excited to have the new opportunity and hope to continue to grow as an educator.
