As Principal, Richard works with his colleagues to strengthen and expand the school's program, and to ensure that everyone -- students, parents, teachers, and administrators -- collaborates to facilitate student success.  Richard earned his PhD in United States History from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, and he taught at universities in Australia and New Zealand before moving to the United States in 2004. At SIL, Richard teaches History and AP Microeconomics.

Richard has supported Tottenham Hotspur FC since birth - a fact that explains a great deal about his outlook on life. In his free time, when he's not watching, playing, or reading about soccer, he may be found reading, cooking, exercising, or battling it out with crosswords.
