Meet Mrs. Ritchie

Meet Mrs. Ritchie
Posted on 08/28/2017
Mrs. RitchieI am a 1995 graduate of Galesburg High School. I attended Knox College for my bachelor’s degree before pursuing a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio. Before beginning my career in education I worked as a Licensed Professional Counselor and Director of Child and Adolescent Services at Bridgeway, INC. I took my passion for serving the children in our community with me to my position as a school counselor at GHS for the last eight years.

I live in Galesburg with my husband, Jeremy, and children, Ava (age 10), and Alex (age 9). In my spare time I enjoy watching my kids do the many things they love. I am also involved with the Galesburg to Peoria St. Jude Run Committee.

I chose to join the administrative team at GHS because I am excited about pursuing a challenge in which I can impact students on a broader level. I am very confident that the GHS staff will continue to meet the intellectual, physical, and social/ emotional needs of your children, our students. I am looking forward to the 2017-2018 school year and beyond as a partnership between you and ourselves. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to call our main office or email me. I believe open communication is very essential in a school and encourage you to reach out to myself or any of the administration team at any time. I also look forward to meeting you in person and thank you in advance for welcoming me into my new role in this remarkable learning community.

Based on the GHS mission statement, our goal is to “provide all students with equal opportunity to achieve academic, physical, and vocational success in a caring environment. This environment shall be based upon mutual respect where all teachers have the right to teach and all students have the right to learn. Our commitment to excellence will enable students to develop as productive, socially responsible citizens.” Please be assured that I will uphold these values personally, as one of your GHS Assistant Principals. Thank you for your time and your continued support.
