Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Candice Richardson
Candice Crosson Richardson grew up on a farm in Crossville, Alabama, and, as unfathomable as it may be, has loved reading, learning new things, and school as long as she can remember. She would go so far as to admit that she loves shopping for school supplies and books more than she does shopping for new clothes. Weird right?
She is married to the most wonderful man, Keith Richardson, and they have two beautiful, although often rambunctious children, Carly, born 2008, and Kross, born 2011. They attend Boaz First Baptist Church and are avid Bama fans.
She has a Bachelor's Degree in English and History and a Master's Degree in Education. She has been teaching language arts since 2003 and has taught grades 6 through college sophomores. She has been teaching at Boaz Middle School since 2007 and is currently teaching 7th and 8th grade college ready classes.
She has a passion for language arts that makes her job both a challenge and an adventure for her every day. Her hope, therefore, is that her classroom extends this same sense of challenge and adventure to her students.
"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
William Butler Yeats
"Life is either a great adventure or nothing."
