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 Reading (K-12) 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!

    Carpool Reminders:You can use both lanes in our two lane road as you enter our carpool to help balance out the line. We want to make sure we do not have any cars out on Buffalo Rd. Mr. Jewett will be at the top helping to direct traffic and alternating the cars; so if you see one line is longer than the other, you can switch lanes carefully to balance out the lines.
