Mr. James Orr
I was born and raised in Richlands (Five Mile) and attended RES, Trexler, and RHS. It's a beautiful place that is full of amazing families and I consider it a blessing to be able to serve the community that has provided so much to me in my own development. I enjoy going on adventures with my wife and our two daugthers. I especially enjoy playing the guitar, drawing, and reading books. I am much the kid at heart and still enjoy collecting comic books and playing video games (both of which I thread into my teaching style to help the math and reading come to life in my classroom). My personal teaching philosophy is "learning and fun can live together under the same roof" and I understand the value of making each day magical for the students that I have the honor to teach. Respect, integrity, dedication, honesty, creativity, compassion, and collaboration are all traits that I shine a spotlight on throughout the year. I look forward to working with your child, and family, and know that together, as a team, we can achieve great success.
