Meet the Teacher
Kelli Richardson was born and raised in the Portland area before moving to Ashland where she earned her degree in English and Writing and a Master’s in Teaching. After starting her family, she enjoyed substitute teaching all over Oregon for the past ten years. She enjoyed the challenge and the ability to see how hundreds of teachers ran their classrooms.
Since putting down roots in Eagle Point with her husband and four sons, Kelli decided it was time to seek out something more consistent. Having already put two of her children on the waitlist, she was excited to see the opening for a class teacher at Madrone Trail. Kelli is quickly realizing that Waldorf education is a great fit for her and her family. She enjoys bringing music, movement, empathy, and beauty into her classroom.
