Wausau School District

Mrs. Kary Riggs


Hi my name is Mrs. Kary Riggs. I am a third grade teacher at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School in the Wausau School District. This is my first year teaching in the district. 


I believe that all students are teachers and all students are learners. In our classroom, I want students to help each other because I believe when they are "teaching" someone else what they know everyone is learning. I want students to take risks and learn from their mistakes. I want all students to believe they can learn and be excited about learning. Afterall we are all lifelong learners. In addition to this I want all students to know that their classmates, their families and I all care about them and we all want them to be successful. 

Educational  and Teaching Background: 

I received my Associate Arts and Science Degree from University of Wisconsin Richland. I then transferred and earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Education at University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse. I am certified to teach grades 1-8 and I have a minor in mathematics. 

I taught seventh grade mathematics in the Walworth School District for two years. I have also taught fourth grade in the Oconto Falls School District for two years. In addition to my own classroom experience I also have five years of substitute teaching experience.
