My name is Debra Kelley Richardson and this is my third year at Cedartown Middle School! It is an honor to teach children and I enjoy every day in the classroom. I am a lifetime resident of Cedartown and graduated from Cedartown High School in 1979. I am also a HUGE Cedartown Bulldog fan and proud to represent the red and black at CMS! I have one son, Kelley, a sixth grader at CMS and my pride and joy. After a long career in banking, I attended Georgia Highlands and graduated with a Bachelor Degree in English Secondary Education from the University of West Georgia. While attending school, I worked as a substitute teacher at Cedartown High School for five years, including my last year as a long term sub.  I love to teach and inspire students to read and write. I look forward to working with each student and help prepare them for a wonderful future! Please feel free to email, call, or meet with me any time. It would be a pleasure to meet you!
