Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Michaela Richard. This is my 5th year at LHECMES. I have taught both 2nd and 1st grade here at Lincoln Heights. I also am in charge of teaching the 2nd and 3rd-grade students in the Rainforest Expedition. I received a double Bachelor of Science from York College of Pennsylvania in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education in 2012. I began my career in Pennsylvania teaching 3rd grade, before relocating to N.C. with my husband. I moved to Harnett County where I taught 5th grade before moving into the 2nd grade position here at Lincoln Heights. I reside in Spring Lake with my husband Spencer, our newest addition, our son Finn, and our two dogs, Loki and Gizmo. We also share custody of my step-son, Korbin as well. My husband and I enjoy traveling, spending time with our friends, and simply relaxing together. I enjoy hiking and working out, reading, coffee, and working outside around the house. I really enjoy yard work and gardening as well. I am excited about the year ahead and the changes coming in the years ahead!
