Ms. Riggle was born in January and her hometown is Acushnet, MA. She went to Bridgewater State (College at the time, now University) for her Bachelor’s in Elementary Ed, and to American International College for her Master’s in Elementary Ed, along with getting a Reading Specialist license.
Mrs. Blouin, my second grade teacher at Acushnet Elementary School. She always used to say, “easy for some, difficult for others.” I think that quote alone made me want to get into teaching. I wanted to understand why it was difficult for others, and how I could help.
If you were not in education what other profession would you like to attempt? I’d be a librarian (or a singer).
