Amy Richardson

Amy Richardson is a regional director who works to ensure teacher and stakeholder efficacy through listening and learning. Amy believes that there is a significant and powerful impact on the lives and livelihood of teachers and students through instructional coaching.

Amy has supported a variety of district roles throughout her career and looks forward to supporting the NTSP coaches as they collaborate to support an entire region of new and beginning teachers. She is also the director of UNC Chapel Hill’s lab school, Carolina Community Academy and appreciates that this unique position keeps her squarely rooted in the PK-12 space.

Amy is still in education today because of the mentors and instructional coaches that supported her own classrooms as a beginning teacher. Her degree in Middle Grades Education from UNC-Chapel Hill was earned through wonderful preparation and supplemented with the NC Teaching Fellows program. She also holds an M.Ed. in Gifted Education from Elon University and a Post-Master’s Certificate in School Administration from WCU.

When she is not working to build the capacity of those she supports and serves, Amy can be found playing ball with her kids, reading a book, and avoiding anything to do with cooking dinner.
