Hello, and welcome to 7th & 8th grade English and reading! I'm so excited to start the 2018/2019 school year with you all!
I was born and raised in Bakersfield and attended Discovery Elementary, Fruitvale Jr. High, and Centennial High School.
After playing a couple years of baseball at Bakersfield College, I transferred up to San Francisco State University where I received my BA in Communication Studies.
I then moved on to Point Loma Nazarene University where I earned my single subject teaching credential in English.
This is my fourth year teaching at NMS, and my fifth year in education total.
I've been married for five years to Mrs. Richert (yes, the one that teaches history across the hall from me). Walt, our first kid, was born last summer on Father's Day. We also have two dogs named Gus and Percy who are so bad they doesn't deserve to be pictured here.
