About Mr. Mark & Lewis

About Mr. Mark

As the saying goes, "Allow me to introduce myself." My name is Mark Richner and I love teaching at Lewis Elementary School! I am originally from Madison, Wisconsin, where I graduated from the University of Wisconsin with an elementary teaching degree and then taught in the Madison public schools. Evie, my wonderful wife, got into grad school to pursue an art degree at the University of Florida and we moved south. During this time, I got my masters in elementary education while working at a professional development school with elementary students and teacher candidates in the University of Florida elementary teacher preparation program. So I have taught students from age five through 23! Evie and I have two daughters who are the loves of our lives and keep us busy these days. They love going down the slide at the park, having books read to them, and making us laugh. I am so glad to be part of the Lewis Elementary community. You can reach me by email at mrichner@pps.net and by phone at 503-916-6360.
