I kept hearing about a “Mr. Richards” when I was teaching English to high school seniors. Everyone in my class loved him and couldn’t stop talking about him, and I was curious to find out who this teacher was.
Over a decade later, I still keep in touch with him and am still in awe at how inspiring and dedicated he is to his thousands of students. He’s the kind of teacher and mentor everyone needs. If you can’t hang with him in person, you can read his books that are like mini (yet extremely impactful) life lessons to remind you to stay engaged, passionate, and keep going.
He’s retired now, but he’s still involved in a myriad of projects that-you guessed it-continue to change the world. Check him out at https://www.jaimerichards.org/
