Hello! My name is Amanda Ritchey and I teach 1st grade. This will be my eighth year at Aikin Elementary. I have lived in Paris, TX my entire life and graduated from Texas A&M-Commerce. I am married to Adam Ritchey. We have a 2 year old daughter named Collyn that amazes us every day! We also share our house with a dachshund named Oscar. I know that this will be a great year and I hope to help your child have a wonderful experience in first grade!
