Hello! Welcome to STRETCH Class!
My name is Melody Rigney and I teach the STRETCH classes at Waynesboro Elementary School. I began my teaching career at WES in 1995 as a teacher's assistant. My experience was great and I decided to become a teacher. I graduated from William Carey University in May of 2001 with a BS in Elementary Education K-8 and Reading K-12 with a concentration in Social Studies. In August of 2001, I started at WES as a 2nd grade teacher. After 8 years of teaching 2nd Grade, I moved to 4th grade where I taught for 8 years. I continued my education obtaining a Gifted Education endorsement in the spring of 2016. This is a new and exciting experience for me and I am loving each day that I am allowed to shape the minds of the young children at Waynesboro Elementary School!
