Grade: 5th Grade
Welcome to Ms. Ritchie's 5th Grade Class! I'm so excited to be your teacher for Reading, Writing and Social Studies this year! I can't wait to learn all about you. Let me start out by telling you a little bit about me.
I was born and raised in Plano, Texas. I went to Plano West Senior High School and attended The University of Kansass for my undergraduate degree in Applied Behavioral Science: Early Childhood Education and Intervention. After returning back to Plano, I obtained my Texas Teaching Cerfitication. This will be my seventh year in the classroom and my first year at Boyd and in Allen ISD. I spent my previous six years teaching in Dallas ISD and after finishing my graduate degree at Southern Methodist University, I wanted to move closer to my family, who lives in Frisco.
I am so excited to live and work in Allen ISD. It has been a dream of mine since coming back to Texas to teach. I moved to Allen this summer, but am fairly familiar with the area, growing up in the next city over. I have three dogs. Danica, a Labrador mix, who is seven years old, Jack, a Chihuahua/Toy Fox Terrier mix, who is fifteen, and Junior, a Chihuahua, who is eight. If I'm not at Boyd, I'm usually involved in my local church, reading a good book, hanging out with my friends, or spending quality time with my family. I adore time with my ten-year-old niece, Lia, and spend as much time as I can with her.

That's a little bit about me. I'm looking forward to finding out all about you!
