About Alexandra Richardson

Dear students and families,

I'm so happy to welcome you to our classroom!  Fifth and sixth grade is a very busy year, filled with lots of fun and learning.

My name is Alexandra Richardson and I am pleased to be your 5th and 6th grade teacher!  This will be my second year teaching at Barton Open and I am very excited to work with you.  We are going to have a fantastic school year filled with learning, growing and new adventures.

I graduated from the University of Minnesota (go gophers!) with my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.  I continued to attend the U of MN for another year to receive my Master of Education degree in Education.  I am from Apple Valley, Minnesota!

I can't wait for all of us to work together and to build a strong community of learners!  You will all experience an incredible amount of growth and have many opportunities for great accomplishments and success throughout the year.  When I am not teaching or planning awesome things for us to do at school...I enjoy listening to music, reading, dancing, going to the movies, being outside and spending time with friends and family.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

The best way to reach me is through email.  My email is:

I promise to get back to you within 24 hours.
