Mrs. Kimberly Dedes

Hello Riverwood Families!

Welcome to Our Seuss-Per Room!

My name is Kimberly Dedes and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. This will be my 8th year teaching and 5th year at Riverwood Elementary School! I graduated from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania in 2013 and we made the best decision to move down to North Carolina in 2014. I love being a part of the Riverwood Family!


My husband and I are incredibly blessed with three handsome little boys, Luke, Liam, and Landon and expecting a little girl, Laylah, due any day now! Luke will be in 3rd grade, Liam will be in 2nd grade, and Landon will be entering Kindergarten this year. I'm thrilled to have all our boys here at Riverwood with me. 


Teaching is my passion and is the most rewarding career. I truly love what I do! I adore being with your "littles" and seeing their faces light up when they reach the goals they set for themselves! I am looking forward to an incredible year with your littles!
