Mrs. Sara Rippard

Hi!  My name is Sara Rippard. This will be my 13th year teaching at River Dell.   I enjoy watching the excitement when students are engaged and learning new things.  In 5th Grade, your child will be switching classes.  I will be your child's ELA and Social Studies teacher.  Ms. Hines will be your child's Math and Science teacher. 

I grew up in Connnecticut and moved to North Carolina after graduating from college.  I started teaching in 2006 after graduating from Sacred Heart University in Connecticut with my Masters Degree in Elementary Education.  I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and spending time outdoors.  The beach is one of my favorite places to visit.
