Amanda Richards began her education career with Teach For America Dallas-Fort Worth after graduating from Cornell University with minors in Education Studies, Inequality Studies, and Latino Studies. Following her corps experience, she received her EdM in Learning and Teaching at Harvard Graduate School of Education. Amanda moved back to Dallas to pursue an Assistant Principal role at a charter school network and became the Principal two years later. As an administrator, Amanda cared deeply about parent satisfaction and engagement, which was reflected by significant gains in parent survey results at her school. Her goal is to help other schools improve their own parent satisfaction rates and to further Possip’s mission of increasing parent engagement and amplifying parent voices.
