Tiffany Rysewyk

   Welcome to 5th Grade at RES!!!!! My name is Tiffany Rysewyk.  I am so excited about being your 5th grade ELA & Social Studies teacher. Along with Mrs. Schmuck, your Math & Science teacher, we have an exciting and rigorous school year coming up that is sure to be very memorable.  Together, we have planned new challenges and ways to bring learning "to life".

     I feel very lucky to be in a profession that I am passionate about and LOVE. I strive to spark that same love of school in my students through a loving environment, leadership opportunities, exploration of interests, and motivation to go "beyond" academically what they thought was possible.

    My love of diverse cultures led me to obtain a Master's Degree in Multi-Cultural Education.  I have enjoyed teaching in San Diego, CA and here in the Jacksonville/Richlands, NC area. Being a Navy family, we have traveled and lived all over the United States.  My husband and I fell in love with this area and we have retired from the military here permanently.

    My family is the most important part of my life.  My husband, Brent, is a retired Chief Independent Duty Corpsman in the US Navy, and is currently a physician assistant at Onslow Memorial Hospital's Emergency Department.  I have 3 adult daughters, Hope, Taylor and Rebecca, a wonderful son-in-law, Gary, and 4 of the cutest grandchildren, Wyatt, Faith, Riley and Waylon. My daughter Hope and 2 of my grandchildren, Faith and Waylon, live with us. Not too long ago, my parents became my neighbors here in Richlands.  Our family also consists of our 2 crazy cats and a yellow lab. In the fall we are fanatics for our favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers! I love to go to the beach and movies, travel, cook, and read.
