Mr. Claud Ridgway

I've been teaching for thirty-seven years, and I began teaching ELA at First Colony Middle School in 2010.  My wonderful wife, Michelle, taught ESL here at First Colony until she retired at the end of the past school year.   As you might imagine, we read, write, and discuss teaching strategies a lot.  We have three children and three grandchildren (so far!).  When we're not doting over the grandchildren, we dream about getting back on the ocean and going on a cruise.  In fact, we've been on over eighty cruises to everywhere from Antigua to Aruba, the Bahamas to Barbados, and Cabo San Lucas to Curacao.  (Now those are some nice A-B-C's!)  I look forward to a fantastic year with my 8th grade  ELA Academic & A.A.C. classes.  We will learn a lot this year and be prepared for high school!
