What I do at DCA: Administrator, 6th & 7th Grade Bible, English and Reading Teacher
Credentials: I graduated from Dalhart High School in 1991 and graduated from WTAMU with a General Studies Degree. I have an EC-6 Generalist certification and a Dyslexia Intervention Certification.
Why I chose to teach at DCA: I love DCA! I love that I get to teach about God every day and spend time in prayer with my students. We are a family and that is so important to me and our students lives.
A little more about me: I am married to Wade Ritchey. We have 2 kids, Ashlyn (22) and JT (19). They both attended DCA from preschool through 6th grade. DCA has been a huge part of our lives. I enjoy reading, cooking, and spending time with my family.
