Mrs. Riddle

2nd Grade Teacher

I have been teaching at St. Amelia School since 2001. I am dedicated to my work and enjoy seeing the children learn and grow.  In my spare time, I enjoy most of all, spending time with my family.  Reading and movies are a source of relaxation.  Scrap booking (although I am always behind) is one of my hobbies. And, during the summer I have recently discovered that I enjoy traveling with my family to new places where we can hike and learn about the history of the area. Our most recent destination was Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, but I think I have enjoyed the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee, best of all.
