My name is Jennifer Richardson. I am married and have two children. My husband, Rick, is the Director of Maintenance at Milan C-2. My son, Bryce, lives and works in Columbia, MO and my son, Aaron, is currently working construction in the Milan area. I am a lifelong resident of Milan. I have spent most of my life in and around the walls of Milan C-2. I have been teaching at Milan for 24 years. I started out in Title Math and then moved to first grade after one year. I stayed in first grade for four years. I was so excited when I finally got the opportunity to move to kindergarten and that is where I have been for the past 19 years. I have a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood/ Elementary Education from Truman State University and a master’s degree from William Woods University.

My philosophy is to teach the whole child.  It’s not just about the academics. It’s about balance between cognitive, physical, social and emotional development. In my classroom, students are encouraged to work together and help each other reach common goals. The children realize the sense of community and its importance. I encourage my students to think creatively, deeply and passionately.
