Michele von Richter

Michele von Richter is excited about teaching kindergarten at Campbell School of Innovation.

?Helping each student discover his or her potential is so rewarding!? she says. ?I?m looking forward to using the design thinking process to empower my students and engage them in their own learning.?

Ms. von Richter started teaching in Southern California 30 years ago, the past 27 of them in Campbell Union School District. She has taught kindergarten through second grade in addition to being a reading intervention teacher.

She believes her job as an educator is to fully invest in children so that they gain their highest levels of success academically, socially, and emotionally.

?Even at a very young age, children can begin to take responsibility for their learning and use their resources to make a difference in their families and the communities around them,? von Richter says.

She holds a Clear Credential, is certified in Crosscultural, Language, and Academic Development (CLAD), and has a Masters in Elementary Education with an emphasis in reading from San Jose State University.
