Professional Biography

  • Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Melissa Riedl (rhymes with Beetle).
    I have lived in Olympia since 2004 but grew up in a military family living in many states and countries. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Washington State University “GO COUGS” and my Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University.  I have been teaching in the North Thurston Public School District since 2012 and have taught kindergarten and third grade (for half a year).  My husband and I have two children, Kennedy (12), Jacob (10) and a dog Atticus. When I’m not at school my favorite thing to do is camping and traveling with my family.
