We are here to read books and learn to write our numbers. We will be responsible and respect each other. We will be safe and learn how to get a job.
My name is Risa Medlin. I live here in Troutman with my husband of 20 years and our two teenage daughters. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Gardner-Webb University with a B.S. in Elementary Education K-6. Our family loves animals. We have a boxer dog, guinea pig, duck, rabbit, fish, and two goats. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. I also enjoy bike riding, watching movies, yoga, reading, going to church, and of course teaching. Both of my daughters attended Troutman Elementary so I know first hand what a great school this is. I am so excited to be teaching 1st grade this year. I look forward to watching all my students grow and have a successful year.
