I am Riley Giddings. I am so excited to be joining the Richlands Primary School family this year! I am a product of Duplin County Schools having attended Rose Hill- Magnolia Elementary, Charity Middle, and Wallace- Rose Hill High School. I then attended Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. After growing up near the beach, a change of scenery during college was great. I loved being in the mountains and enjoyed a lot of new activities such as snowboarding, bouldering, jumping off of waterfalls, and lots of hiking. After graduating from ASU, I returned to Duplin County.


Professional Mission Statement:


My goal is to instill bravery, passion, and joy within my students. I believe that students can and will achieve anything they dream or desire. My role as an educator is to be an advocate for my students. I believe that teachers should strive for excellence over perfection and carry joy to fuel their classroom.


I have taught in Duplin County for the last five years at Rose Hill- Magnolia Elementary. I taught four years in 3rd grade and then one year in 2nd grade. This is my sixth year teaching and my first year in Kindergarten and I am looking forward to the change and my new group of tiny friends.


I bought my own home 2 years ago in Beulaville, NC. I am the middle of 3 children with wonderful parents. I have 3 nephews and 1 niece. I also coach U10 soccer for the East Duplin Club. I am extremely passionate about children and their capabilities. I plan to pursue National Board Certification next year with a Master's in Educational Leadership to follow. One of my visions is to one day start schools to raise up future world leaders possibly overseas. I am involved in various minstries at my church, Grace Covenant.
