5th Grade Homeroom Teacher


Melissa Ritchey

I am married to Wade, and we have 2 kids(Ashlyn, 21, attends Amarillo College to pursue her teaching degree and JT, 18, also attends Amarillo College-undecided).  I grew up in Dalhart and we moved back about 20 years ago to raise our family.  Both of my kids attended DCA from preschool through 6th grade.  I love DCA and all it has to offer our students.  I received my degree for West Texas A&M and my teaching certificate from I-Teach Texas.  I recently completed a Dyslexia Intervention Program and will be offering dyslexia intervention after school this year.  I love to help kids learn and figure out how to help the students succeed.

Time at DCA: 16 years

Why DCA?:  I love DCA because I feel God has called me here to teach, lead, and disciple kids.  DCA has a special place in my heart as I have seen students and families lives changed by being a part of DCA.  How awesome is that!

Favorite Bible Verse:  “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”  Isaiah 10:31
