Mr. William K. Richardson, Jr.

I am starting my 21st year at Owen J. Roberts High School and my 5th year as an administrator in the high school.  I had the honor of serving as the Interim Principal last year as we navigated through all of the educaitonal changes that COVID brought us.  I am happy to return to the role of Assistant Principal and to support our administrative team including our New Principal, Mr. Steve Kollar and our two other Assistant Principals, Mrs. Caroline Slade and Mr. Eric Wentzel.  I will also continue to act at the International Baccalaureate Career Program Coordinator.   I spent the first 16 years of my teaching career teaching Applied Science, Earth Science, Engineering classes and AP Environmental Science. I am proud to have worked with our Special Education department to help develop the Emotional Support Educational Program in the high school.  Prior to becoming a teacher, I was a Professional Geologist working to evaluate and clean up hazardous waste sites.

I am looking forward to working with our high school administrative team as we continue to provide opportunities for our students to reach their educational goals.

I hope to see you around the building in your classes, clubs and at events. If I can be of help to you, please contact me at or phone (610-469-5153) or just find me in the main office.

Mr. William K. Richardson, Jr.
