My name is James Richards. This will be my 18th year teaching at Belle Chasse High School, and this will be my 24th year teaching over all. My first year at BCHS was the year before Katrina. I grew up in Metairie and attended East Jefferson High School. After high school I attended Rhodes College and got my teaching certification from the University of New Orleans. I will be teaching English IV and Business English. I am also the senior advisor and in charge of graduation. I know this year will be different from the past, but we are going to make it work.
