Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!
My name is Kathy Ritchie. This is my 18th year of teaching. I have taught 3rd grade for 11 of those years. I have also taught first grade, second grade and kindergarten. This is my first year in 4th grade and I am so excited! I have three children. My son, Jennings, is 22 and my daughters, Eliza and Virginia, are 21. I have been married for 26 years! I also have two sweet dogs named Levi and Sadie Blu:)
I attended the University of Georgia where I received a bachelor's degree in business administration, and then attended the University of Arkansas where I received a bachelors degree in elementary education. I am so grateful to be a part of the Riverwood team! It is an AMAZING place to work and learn.
At the November Regular Session Board of Education meeting, the Board voted unanimously to improve safety and security in Johnston County Public Schools by implementing state-of-the-art security systems in each of the district’s schools.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
