Ms. Teresa Riddle
I have a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh as well as a Masters in Education from the North Carolina State University. I am licensed in K-12 special education. I have taught from 2001-2004, took an 8 year hiatus from teaching to be a stay at home mom. I returned to teaching in 2012, so this is my 9th year here at Polenta. Over the years, I've taught in various continuum of service settings, beginning in the 3-5 self-contained setting and currently in K-5 resource/inclusion setting, During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my sons, ages 14 and 17, volunteering at church as well as in the Raleigh community, reading, and watching Steelers football. I look forward to working with you and your child this school year.
