Mary Beth Riddick

My name is Mary Beth Riddick and I am a first grade teacher at River Dell Elementary School.  I am originally from Eure, NC, a small town in the northeastern part of the state.  I graduated from East Carolina University (Go Pirates!) with a degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Child Development and Family Studies.  I received my National Board Certification in 2014 and have taught in Greene, Pitt, and Wake counties.  I am the proud mom of two boys, Sawyer and Kesler and our sweet little dog, Andy.   My husband and I, along with our sons, moved to Clayton in 2015 and we love being part of this community!  I spend my free time reading, baking, and supporting my kids at their sporting events.  Teaching is my passion and I love helping my students develop the tools to follow their dreams!
