Compassion for others

RES's New Assistant Principal Announced
Richland Elementary School has named Katy Conradson as their new assistant principal completing the newly formed administration team with Mr. Jeff Johnson at the helm.
“Mrs. Conradson has been a wonderful asset to Richland Elementary School during her first two months as an administrator,” Johnson said. “She has stepped right into her new role and has done a wonderful job; she has been instrumental in organizing our new student “Champion Ambassadors” as well as other initiatives, so I’m excited to see what other innovative ideas the future holds with her in her new position.”
A native Alabamian, Conradson majored in early childhood education at Auburn University and has a Master's Degree from Troy University (Phenix City).
“I was educated not to just be a school administrator, but to be an instructional leader with a strong background in curriculum and data analysis,” Conradson said. “I want to make schools better and not just be somebody that sits in an office and handles disciplinarian actions.”
Conradson has experience teaching in the K-2 realm and says that she chose that route because she wanted to make an impact on children right when they started their educational careers.

New RES Principal (Continued)
“If you can connect with kindergarten students and really make them love school then hopefully that will be a passion that they will carry through their schooling years,” Conradson said. “I’ve always had a heart for the younger students because they are still deciding if they love school or not and I want to try and make sure they do.”
Conradson says the best part of her day is coming to work and greeting all the smiling faces of the kids that come to RES.
“I love opening car doors and being the first person that day to tell them ‘good morning,’” Conradson said. “That makes me really happy and everyone I work with just has a great attitude and I think it is because we all work as a team here at Richland.”
