Mrs. Heather Rigdon

Special Education Teacher


Hello! I am Heather Rigdon, and I am the Resource teacher for 4th and 5th grades. I have spent the majority of my teaching years in either Upper Elementary or Middle School Special Education resource positions. I love my student's determination and dedication to always giving their best! I have taught since 2002 and have loved every minute of it. I graduated from UNT on the Dean's list with a Bachelor of Science degree with a Special Education major.

I look forward to getting to know you this year!
