Mrs. Riddell and Leo
Welcome to 5th grade! I am your 5th grade
Science and Social Studies teacher. I am really excited about having this experience with you and know it will be fantastic!
I have always loved school. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in
International Studies from the University of Richmond, Virginia. I was also
lucky enough to study for a semester in Moscow, Russia. That is where I
learned to speak Russian. After my kids went to school, I went back to ASU
and got my Master’s degree in Elementary Education. I absolutely love being
a teacher. I love getting to know my students and going on their learning
adventure with them!
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. My daughter,
Hannah, is a Junior at Highland High School and my son, Michael, is a
Freshman there. My husband, Chuck, is the Chief Financial Officer for MW
Mounts, which means he spends a lot of time looking at numbers and budgets!
I also have 5 dogs and a cat, who I love like my own children! You will hear all
about the trouble they get into.
My family and I love to travel and to watch soccer. Our favorite thing to do
is to travel to a city to watch our Portland Timbers play another MLS team.
Who knows where we will go this year!
