Dr. Temeca L. Richardson, a native of California and affectionately known as Doctor T, has been a public school educator for more than 20 years. Doctor T has worked as a teacher (to students as well as new teachers), a principal, a professor, and most recently as an Area Superintendent. Additionally, she is an author, an expert speaker and trainer, and most proudly a mother to her beautiful 17-year-old son.
Dr. Richardson holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology with a double minor in English and Human Development from the University of California, at Davis. She also holds a master's degree in Instructional Leadership in Curriculum and Instruction and a second master's degree in Education Administration both from National University in Sacramento, CA. Doctor T attained her doctorate degree in Education Administration from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA.
In 2007, Dr. T completed her first book entitled Can the Black Church Save Young Black America? This book takes a critical look at the educational plight of Black youth and it challenges the church to once again become the driving force behind the fight for quality education in the Black community.
In 2009, Dr. T launched a training seminar entitled, DestinyCalls Women's Seminars where she spoke to women about learning the skills and tools needed to walk into their destiny.
In 2010, through the non-profit that Doctor T established 7 years prior, the Much Lov 2 Give Foundation, Inc. launched its first ever I AM Women's History Scholarship Event. For 5 consecutive years, the organization had given away thousands of dollars in scholarship money and prizes as well as teamed up with other local businesses to give away backpacks and much needed school supplies to children in underserved areas in Sacramento.
In 2013, Doctor Richardson took a leap of faith and moved to Houston, Texas where she now resides. Since being there, she has launched the first ever Health, Wealth, and Wisdom TeleSummit that featured 7 women over 4 days with 3 topics and 1 purpose: to help women to become their best selves.
This has been her life's path because she worked to overcome many obstacles from early on. She teaches and trains on personal development because she overcame things such as immediate family drug and alcohol addictions, personal homelessness (even in college), parent incarceration, first in college, recent personal illnesses (mono and Lupus) just to name a few. Doctor T works with others to offer hope, strength, and a personal connection because she has walked a similar path.
Finally, Doctor T founded and launched SmartLife Notes™ which is an online business solely devoted to training and coaching people who want to make a personal transformation in their lives. Her goal is to teach others how to use smart steps combined with smart trainings to build a smart future.
