I am so pleased to write about my wonderful colleague, Becca Ritchie. I’ve known Becca for over 25 years at RSD in various capacities— Department head, Choral teacher, Computer Science teacher, REA support, friend and colleague. Becca is a gifted and intelligent leader. She is very focused on teacher issues in the workplace, as well as education nationwide. She always has time to talk to us individually about our concerns. She is extremely knowledgeable about education and political issues, fairness, and equity and access.
Becca brings teachers together in various capacities, and unites us all. I was thrilled to hear that Becca decided to run for REA President. Her leadership qualities, her intelligence, caring nature, and her collaboration with administrators and teachers in RSD make her uniquely qualified for this very position.
