Hello! My name is Jill Richards. I am kindergarten teacher at Gier Elementary School!

This is my 23rd year of teaching. Prior to arriving at Hillsdale Community Schools, I taught middle school in Lewiston, MI, 5th grade at North-Adams-Jerome Public Schools and Head Start preschool with Community Action Agency.

I  have three children, Madeline (Hillsdale College graduate), Ethan (current Hillsdale College student) & Jonah (10th grader at HHS). As a family, we enjoy traveling, playing games, being outdoors, watching movies and just being together. :)  

My favorite thing about teaching kindergarten is being able to help them socially and emotionally. To create a healthy school family and community.  They make me laugh EVERY day! I get tired sometimes...but I love them to pieces!
