Mr. Richards is in his second year of teaching. In those years, he has taught 8th Grade Science and the 6th-8th Grade PE and has also taken on the role as the DIS Athletic Director. The consummate team player, he takes on extra jobs, not only for the betterment of kids, but to better himself. He is always willing to help anyone; students, parents, co-workers and is one of the most respected co-workers and teachers on campus, and when you meet him, you will know why! Mike Richards demonstrates an amazing work ethic and shows respect throughout the campus to all, which is only one of many reasons that make him an amazing role model for our students. Durham Intermediate School is so lucky to have him, congratulations !
