Mrs. Kelly Richkus, Assistant Principal

There’s no place like home! I am very excited to be returning to the South Plainfield Middle School as the assistant principal.  There is something very special and unique about this school to me.  It is the place where my career as an educator began almost twenty years ago.  I am looking forward to working closely with the students, parents, and staff to create a wonderful learning environment and middle experience for everyone.

Mrs. Kelly Richkus graduated from Monmouth College with Bachelors of Arts degree with a double major in Education and English. She began her teaching career here at the South Plainfield Middle School in 1997. During this time, Mrs. Richkus became actively involved serving as the student council advisor, the school newspaper advisor, and the cheerleading club advisor. Mrs. Richkus, because she has a passion for learning, decided to return to school to receive her Masters degree in Education and earned her principals' certification. After teaching sixth and seventh grade English, Mrs. Richkus became a high school assistant principal. She worked at SPHS for thirteen years before returning to where it all began for her, SPMS.  Mrs. Richkus loves working with students of all grade levels and is looking forward to an amazing year.  On a personal notes, Mrs. Richkus loves the NY Mets and the Wizard of OZ.  She is married to Robert, and together they are raising their amazing sons, Luke and Blake.
