Georgia Ricard » Welcome


Welcome to First Grade!!!!!
Where the Learning Never Ends!!
I am so excited to welcome you to First Grade. My name is Georgia Ricard. I have been teaching for 25 years in a variety of positions. I have a Bachelor's Degree from USM and a Master's Degree from the WCU in Elementary Education with a emphasis in Early Childhood. I have taught all grades including teaching English to Japanese college students. While I love all students, First Graders are my favorite. I am from San Diego, California but have been in Mississippi since 1999. My husband, Joe Ricard retired after spending 20 years in the Navy,serving our country. We lived in Japan for two years. We loved it here in Mississippi and we decided to stay. I have two sons, Christopher and Michael. Christopher graduated from Gautier High School in 2004 and went on to get an Engineering Degree from the University of Southern Mississippi and is employed at Ingalls Shipyard. Michael is currently a Senior attending Gautier High School and plans to become an art teacher. He is a gifted and paid artist when he sold a piece of his work at the Gautier Mullet Festival. I have 5 pets, one dog, a cat, and. three Bearded Dragons. They are all rescue pets. I enjoy going to the movies and to Comic Con.
