Welcome to my class! My name is Mr. Wade Ritchey, and I’d like to personally welcome you to my class. I started my teaching career in Dalhart at the XIT Secondary School where I worked for 12 years, then I went on to be the 7th grade math teacher at Dalhart Jr. High, assistant principal at Dalhart Elementary and then principal of Dalhart Elementary. I even spent one year teaching at the prison. This will be my 2nd year with Hartley ISD. Prior to the start of my teaching career, I studied at West Texas State University, where I received a Bachelor of Science. I received my masters from Lamar University in school administration. Currently I teach 6th grade math and 8th grade math.
I am married and have a son and daughter that are both in college. In my spare time I enjoy playing guitar and playing with my 2 dogs, Ace - White German Shepherd and Shadow - Siberian Husky.
This is going to be a great year!!!!
