Mrs. Kathleen Richards
I am a Rosedale graduate. I attended Kindergarten - 8th grade in the Rosedale School District when there was only one school site. After Rosedale, I attended North High School and then attended Bakersfield College, where I received my AA in Liberal Studies. I transferred to Cal State University Bakersfield where I earned my BA in Liberal Studies. I completed the teaching credential program earning my credential in 1992. I began teaching in the Bakersfield City School district in Fall of 1992. I returned to Cal State Bakersfield in 1996 and earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Spring of 1997. After teaching in Bakersfield City School District for 5 years, I moved to the Rosedale School District. I began teaching at Almondale in the fall of 1997, and I have been teaching 3rd grade since that time.
I enjoy spending time with my husband in the mountains hunting. We are avid hunters during deer season - both archery and rifle, and also during bird season - focusing on quail. We love to be in the outdoors and spending time in nature. We also love to spend time with our children and grandchildren.
