Hello and welcome to my webpage! My name is Mr. Richard Faucett, and I want to take a few moments to introduce myself. I have been in education for the past 15 years. Prior to beginning my career as an educator, I spent two years working for an environmental company doing environmental work, specifically Erosion and Sedimentation Control. I have taught classes in the discipline of Environmental Science, AP Environmental Science, and Earth Systems.
My degrees were all earned at Valdosta State University. My first degree was in Philosophy (1998) and then I returned in the early 2000's and completed my second degree in Environmental Geoscience with a minor in Geology.
My hobbies are focused around outdoor activities. I have hiked the Appalachian Trail in the state of Georgia and North Carolina, as well as numerous other trails throughout the Southeast. In the summer of 2017, I spent a week and a half hiking in the Rocky Mountain National Park just outside of Estes Park, CO. I have also kayaked throughout the Okefenokee Swamp.
