Dr. Richard Hutnik

The Reading Rule that Changed Lives


Dr. Richard J. Hutnik was born to teach. Why? Because he loved kids, loved being with them, and always went the extra mile to engage them. While teaching Reading and Social Studies, he hooked his students with hands-on activities, such as creating an in-school museum and conducting historical community research in a neighborhood graveyard. But perhaps his greatest impact on the lives of his students was the simple rule he implemented, as the principal of Sammy McClure Middle School in Atlanta, Georgia.
