Hello. My name is Brandon Richards and I am proud to be a member of the Montgomery County High School family!
I did not start out my professional career as a teacher, I actually began as a hotel manager. I completed my Bachelor's of Science in Human Resources in 2004 from Robert Morris University, located outside of Pittsburgh, PA. I always enjoyed the training and development of my employees and decided I would return to school and become a teacher. I returned to Robert Morris University in May 2008 and began my Master's of Science in Instructional Leadership as well as my certification in Social Studies. Once I completed my certification, I relocated to West Point, KY, and served as the social studies teacher at West Point Independent from 2010-2012. During my time there I served as both the yearbook sponsor and basketball coach. I am currently finishing my doctorate in education at Morehead State University.
I decided to make the move to Montgomery County High School in the summer of 2012 and couldn't be happier. I currently teach United States History, Crime and Punishment, and Sports History. I am the Chess Team Coach. I am excited to share my time in providing students with outlets outside of the classroom in which to grow.
I prescribe to a very simple motto that I expect all my students to adhere to. Simple Respect; expect nothing more, accept nothing less. I look forward to a wonderful year at Montgomery County High School and to providing students with a teacher that cares about where the students have been, where they are, and where they are going!
