Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Rachel Richardson


I attended Calhoun Community College where I received an Associate's Degree in Elementary Education. I continued my education at Athens State, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude and received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education K-6. 


I have been teaching in the elementary setting for over 10 years. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade. I first started my career in Huntsville City Schools. After having my first child, I took a year off to take care of him. I started teaching in the Madison City School system in 2018. I love teaching at Columbia and I am looking forward to an amazing year!


I would like to take this time to introduce myself. I have lived in Alabama my entire life. I grew up in Madison where I was lucky enough to attend Madison, Heritage, and West Madison Elementary. I later attended Liberty Middle School and then graduated from Bob Jones. I met my husband after we both moved back home from college. I have been married since 2015 to my husband, Colin. We have a son, Colton, who is 6, and a daughter, Audrey, who is 3. We also have two dogs named Princess and Lily. I love watching Alabama football, painting, and spending time with my family.
