Welcome to Wilson. I am Richard Finch and I am married to an amazing middle school math teacher. We have two adult children and a beautiful granddaughter.
My call to teaching took a long path. I was an engineer at Raytheon where I worked for 33 years. After taking an early retirement, I started tutoring math and coaching here at Wilson. From there, I became a teacher’s aide in the middle school ED-P classroom. I really enjoyed helping children understand math, but I especially enjoyed working with the ED-P program. It didn’t take me long to realize that my new career was going to be in teaching. I have a passion for helping these kids develop as students and people.
