Richie Ressel 2016 YNPN LINK Presenter
Richie Ressel moved to the Valley six years ago when he decided to get his Master's in Education at Arizona State University and become a teacher through the Teach For America program. Richie worked in the Glendale Elementary School District for six years as a teacher, instructional coach, and coordinator for the New Teacher Induction program. Richie and his cofounder started HEROES For Students in 2013 when they received grants from ASU and were accepted into the SEED SPOT program to develop their idea. Richie is excited to continue his work in education as he takes the leap to begin working full time as the Executive Director of HEROES For Students.
