Mrs. Spring Richardson

Welcome to Southport Elementary second gradeThis is my 23rd year of teaching and twenty-two of those years have been spent at Southport Elementary.  I am a graduate of Columbia College with a B.A. degree in Speech-Language Pathology (a minor in visual arts) and also from UNCW with a B.A. degree in Elementary Education. I began my career as a speech pathologist in Clemson, SC, and then ventured to N.C. to pursue an additional degree in Elementary Education/K-6 while I continued working in home health.  My husband (Wade) and I have lived in Southport since 1999.  We have two children and a King Charles spaniel named Scout.  I am an avid Clemson fan (Go Tigers!!!), NC State parent (GO Pack!), love to teach, read, drink coffee, travel, run and I have a passion for photography.

I am looking forward to a fantastic year of working collaboratively with you and your child!

Homework Folders



    Homework will be sent on Mondays and returned on Fridays.  We realize that students have a range of activities outside of the school day and take that into account.  There will be a “free” or catch-up night each week. Please monitor that your student completes the classroom enrichment activities over the course of the school week.
