My name is Richard A. Jenisch and I currently serve Nottingham School as Title 1 Coordinator, a position I have held for the past 7 years. I am a retired school administrator with over 45 years of experience as an educator. I began my career as a 5th and 6th grade teacher at Allen School in Rochester. I later became the 6th grade teacher and Principal at Gonic School, also in Rochester. I then became Principal of McClelland School, a position I held for many years. I finished my career as principal of Strafford School where I served the school/community for 21 years. I retired in 2009 and accepted the coordinator’s position in Nottingham the same year.
I am a certified NH Administrator and Elementary Teacher. I graduated from Plymouth State College with a B.Ed. in Elementary Education and from the University of Maine with a M.Ed. in special populations and received my Principal endorsement through the Department of Education.
I was a volunteer fire fighter for much of my life serving on the Barnstead, Rochester, and Strafford Departments. I also became a Certified Emergency Medical Technician receiving my training through Exeter Hospital.
My interests include children’s literature, gardening, travel, and motorcycle riding.
