About Me

I am Mrs. Kelly Ridgway, most recently from Rosedale, Oklahoma. I am married with three children (all three WHS graduates). I've been teaching at Wayne High School since August 2013. I have a Master's Degree in Statistics from Oklahoma State University (go Pokes!), and a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Tulsa (go Canes!).  I'm certified to teach a variety of classes (English, Mathematics, Speech, Drama, Debate), but my favorite classes to teach are the ones you are in! Well... that and anything that lets me talk about math at some point....

This year I am teaching Junior English, Algebra 2, Trig and Reading for Pleasure - all excellent classes. I'm also the High School Student Council sponsor. 


Like most teachers, I have expectations for all of these classes. Here are the most basic ones:

What you can expect from me

  • Be ready to teach each day

  • Be fair and consistent

  • Teach the material in a variety of ways

  • Encourage students to be their best

  • Be available to help whenever possible

  • Admit when I am wrong and strive to be the best I can be

What I expect from you

  • Be ready to learn each day

  • Do you daily homework assignments before they are due

  • Be polite to everyone in the classroom

  • Be on time

  • Ask for help when you need it

  • Come prepared (books, paper, pencils, etc.)
