Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Erin Richards and I am very excited to be your child’s kindergarten teacher. I was born and raised in Fairfax County and graduated from Shenandoah University where I majored in Elementary Education. This will be my third year at Countryside; I taught first grade for the last two years and am excited to be switching gears to kindergarten this year!
In my free time, I enjoy checking out different shops and restaurants in old town historic districts. I like to go to concerts, go on hikes, workout, and watch sporting events.
I believe in fostering a positive classroom environment and value the importance of strong parent-teacher communications. I look forward to working closely with you and your child to make this a fun-filled year of learning in Kindergarten. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
