Welcome to Mr. Richards Health webpage. I am happy you are here! I have been teaching Health and Physical Education for 26 years. My first nine years I taught in El Paso, Texas with the past 17 being here in Anoka-Hennepin. I have taught at Blaine for the past 8 years teaching Health and Physical Education. Currently, I am the Health Department leader and I teach both Health 10 and Healthy Living. I received my Bachelors degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and my Masters of Education from St. Mary's University. I love my job and I love my family!! We spend a lot of our time at our cabin hunting, fishing, cross country skiing, kayaking, and sitting around the bonfire. My family and my faith are the two most important things in the world to me! I am very thankful for my wife, Tcmy best friend. My kids are amazing. Elizabeth, is a Senior at the University of Minnesota-Rochester studying medicine. She will be studying abroad in Ecuador and India this fall. She will be graduating in December and starting her chiropractor degree at Northwestern Health Sciences in Bloomington in January! Matt will be continuing at ARCC this fall in getting his generals done. Sam started at St John's this fall and is excited for his new challenges ahead!
The greatest gifts I was ever given was being a father and finding Tracy!
This class is SO important to your child's future. As I will tell them throughout my course...the most important teachers are your parents. Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success, choose good paths, and live a bright and HEALTHY future!
