Libby Richards

Third Grade Teacher


Hello! My name is Libby McCreedy Richards. I have been teaching at EDS for 22 years. I am from Lake Charles and graduated with a degree in Early Childhood from McNeese State University in 1995. I am certified to teach preschool through fourth grade. I began in PreK 2, taught several years in PreK 4, and now love being in third grade! This was always a favorite year for my own children, so I jumped at the chance to move. 

I believe in a positive, safe, and empowering environment. I value the unique perspectives and learning styles of each student. I aim to create informed citizens who can come together to solve problems and make a difference in the world. I am a student for life in order to continually grow as a teacher and to present the most current material. 

I am the co-coordinator for the Junior Team Green of Lake Charles and assist with many green initiatives on campus. I also teach ballet at the Lake Charles Dance Academy and volunteer with the Lake Area Ballet Theatre. 

My husband, Guy, and I have a son at McNeese and a daughter at LSU. They are both in college and attended EDS. We are members of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. 

We work hard in third grade but have a blast doing it!
