As a student information assistant (SIA) for Falls Church, Westfield, and Interagency Alternative Schools (IAS), Linda Richards makes an impact with everyone she meets. Whether she was coaching softball, representing the staff in talent shows, or singing the National Anthem at graduations, Linda is deeply rooted and involved at each school.

She skillfully supports over 130 staff and shares her knowledge with all partners to strengthen their potential to help others. She is the enthusiastic voice of IAS as she is often the first person you hear when you call.
