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.
