Kathie Riddle
First Grade Teacher
Kathie Riddle image

This is my 21st year in first grade.  I love teaching first grade.   Before coming to TES, I worked for several years in special education as a paraprofessional and substitute teacher.  I also spent 10 years as a child care provider while my children were small. 

I earned my B.S. in Elementary Education from Saint Mary College in 1997 and my MAT from the University of Saint Mary in 2005.  During the 2012-2013 school year, I had the opportunity to take Reading Recovery Teacher training classes through Emporia State University.

I have been married for 35 years and have two children.  Both of my children attended Tonganoxie Public Schools K-12.  My son, Chuck, is married and is a graduate of Midwestern Baptist Theological College & Seminary.  He is currently working to plant a church in the Overland Park area and as a mortgage loan officer.  My daughter, Amie graduated from the University of Saint Mary.  She is married, is a licensed secondary English teacher, and is a self-employed stay at home mom.  I have one granddaughter.

In addition to teaching first grade, I am also a member of the TES Building Leadership Team, the district Teaching and Learning Committee,  and serve on the social studies curriculum committee.

My plan time is 10:48-11:38.  ​My email address is: kriddle@tong464.org and my number at school is 913-416-1480 EXT 4081.  My Weebly website is: tesriddlefirstgrade.weebly.com
