Libby Richards

Third Grade Teacher


Hello! My name is Libby McCreedy Richards. I have been teaching at EDS for 21 years. I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood from McNeese State University in 1995. I am certified to teach preschool through fourth grade. I spent many years teaching preschool before moving to third grade. 

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. We participate in city meetings, contests, and special events with students and teachers from several schools. I am also a ballet teacher at the Lake Charles Dance Academy and an advisor for the Lake Area Ballet Theatre. 

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

I have been known to wear a tutu and sing ‘80’s music!
