Degrees and Certifications:
I am Coach Richards and I am entering my 8th year in education and my very first year at Lopez Middle School as the Boys Athletics Coordinator. My first teaching experience was at Converse Elementary School, where I taught Physical Education for two years. I was fortunate to be able to make the move to Northeast Independent School District by getting an opportunity to work at Ed White Middle School. In my previous five years at Ed White, I taught Athletics, Physical Education, and Health while coaching Football, Basketball, Track, and Soccer.
Originally from a small city in eastern Pennsylvania where I grew up playing baseball year round and focusing on my education. Had the opportunity to move out to the western side of PA where I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education and Health from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Following my graduation, in 2013, I moved to San Antonio and have been here ever since! I earned a Masters Degree in Kinesiology and Health from University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA- Go Runners) and have had the awesome opportunity to share my knowledge and excitement of wellness topics with my students.
This year I will be coaching 7th Grade Football and Track. Keep a look out for me at various Lopez events and sports games because I will be there in support of our Panthers!
