Mrs. Ritchie began teaching in 1982 in the Rich County School District after her graduation from Utah State University. She quit teaching in 1985 to stay home and raise her family. She eventually returned to teaching as a substitute teacher and then as a literacy aide. In 2001, she resumed teaching at Snowville Elementary as the K-3 teacher. Her journey as a teacher in Box Elder School District next took her to McKinley Elementary. In 2008, she took a position as a literacy coach for 3 years where she worked at Garland and Fielding Elementary. Her passion to work with kids always remained and she eventually returned to the classroom at Garland Elementary. Her next step led her full circle back to Snowville Elementary where she currently teaches K-2. She has always been a learner and has received her Masters degree from Weber State University along with her ELL endorsement, Level 1 and 2 Reading endorsement and her Math endorsement. She truly believes in the power of 'yet'. Her students can frequently hear her say, "If you try you might, if you don't you won't".
I attended Western Governors University to obtain my degree in Elementary Education and was thrilled to begin teaching at Snowville Elementary in 2022. Watching kids learn, grow, and accomplish difficult tasks fills my cup! I believe in the potential of my students to learn at high levels, and my responsibility to positively influence their early childhood education. When my family and I moved to Snowville for my husband's job, I quickly fell in love with the area and the community. We have two children and love riding, roping, and anything that makes our kids smile!
