Mr. Rich’s Educational Philosophy:
“I know what we teach is important for every student; I know every student can learn what we teach at high levels; I know each student is worth all my effort to make it happen; I believe every parent and every teacher represents our students'/my own students' best chance at a happy future. I'm all in on becoming the best for our kids.”
