Hi! My name is Kristy Richmond and this is my 21st year teaching. My passion is teaching reading. I have spent 19 years of my career in first grade. The other 2 years I spent as a Reading Recovery Teacher. I was trained and certified through the University of Kentucky in 2010. My experience with Reading Recovery provided me with a richer knowledge of how to teach reading, especially targeting struggling readers. I enrolled in Georgetown University this year (fall 2021) to pursue a Rank 1 to become a Literacy Specialist! I guess one might say I'm obsessed with teaching reading.
