My name is Susan Riggs and I teach fifth grade at Mount Olive Elementary School.  I have also taught special education and first grade.  I have been teaching for 10 years.  My undergraduate degree is in Business with a focus in Marketing. My Master's Degree is in Collaborative Education. 

I enjoy being with my husband and children when I am not at school. My children are both in college at Birmingham Southern.  We love going on vacations and just being together.
Disney World is our favorite place to go!!

My vision for my classroom is to have a place where all children can learn however they need to learn.  We are all different and have different ways of thinking and processing information.  I tell students all the time that if you have a problem with a lesson I am teaching then I am asking a fish to climb a tree, and a fish cannot climb a tree.

Teaching is such a joy! I so enjoy being with children and watching those light bulbs come on when they learn something new.
