About Me

My name is Joan Rickard and this will be my first year teaching at Berean Christian High School.  I am very excited to be teaching at my son's school and able to work with all the teacher's that have had such an impact over the years.  I have been teaching in private schools for the last 5 years.  I have mostly been teaching math classes, but have also taught middle school and high school science, history, and economics.  I have taught in classrooms and in one on one settings.  I have enjoyed working with the students and helping them to understand subjects that they had previously found difficult.  I have been tutoring professionally since I was 16.  I love math and like to get my students excited about it as well.  

I grew up in So. Cal went to the US Coast Guard Academy and graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering.  I was active duty for 5 years and then got out to try my Civil Engineering career.  I ended up moving into the computer side of the business and started working in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), think Google maps on steroids. I worked for the City of Walnut Creek in Information Technology until I had my first son and then took 8 years off to stay home with my two boys.  I switched careers to teaching when there was an opening at Contra Costa Christian for a math teacher.
