Sedalia Specials Team

Hola! My name is Jen tucker. I began teaching in the regular education classroom and transitioned into Art in 2011. I always enjoyed Art as a child, as well as, with Math and Science. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a BA in Elementary Education and Lesley University with a MA in Curriculum and Instruction: Creative Arts.  Like any art teacher, I love to draw, paint and create, making me a walking encyclopedia of stain removal techniques should you ever need any advice. What you might be surprised to learn is that I am a mom, wife, and cancer survivor. I love to work in the garden, camp with friends and family, and enjoy white water kayaking, canyoneering and my newest passion in climbing.

My name is Samantha Walker, and this is my very first year teaching! I've lived in Colorado my whole life and graduated from MSU Denver this past spring. I've been involved in music for as long as I can remember, whether it was singing in the elementary choir or playing a variety of instruments in middle and high school band growing up; music is in my blood. I currently perform with the Highlands Ranch Concert Band playing clarinet. I enjoy experiencing all kinds of music, watching movies and reading in my spare time and when I'm not doing that, I'm loving my two cats, Chloe and Mia, at home. I'm so excited to have the opportunity to teach at Sedalia and to meet and learn from all the students I'll meet both now and in the years to come.

Hello there! My name is Emma Wickham and I am excited to be teaching the wonderful students of Sedalia in PE this year. After graduating from the University of Idaho, I chose to move to this beautiful state of Colorado to advance my career in the PE teaching field. Being in this great state has been everything I had hoped for. 

During my free time, I love to play pickleball, go hiking, camping, go to sporting events, or just relax at home with a good book. My love for movement and lifetime activity has always helped guide my teaching and I love being able to share that with our Sedalia Mustangs.

Hello! My name is Bill Richmond. I have been working in Douglas County School District since 1998. Over the years I have had the privilege to work in a variety of roles starting as an E.A. for SSN, elementary technology teacher, classroom teacher in grades 3rd, 4th, and a combo 3/4. I am loving the opportunity to manage the library and technical devices in the school while teaching Coding to students in the afternoon.

Outside of school, I live in Castle Rock with my wife, Kirstin, and 12 year old son who attends middle school. My step-daughter is studying Psychology at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln and coaches volleyball. some of my hobbies include mountain biking and taking our dog for long walks with my wife.
