• Hello Viking Nation!

    My name is Beth Rickerts.  I have been at NWMS for 16 years as either a 6th grade or 7th grade teacher.

    I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a BS in elementary education, with certifications in language arts and social studies. GO COWBOYS!!!

    I have driven coast to coast on I-40.  I started my career in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and moved to the Sacramento area.  I lived and taught 5th grade in Galt, California.  I took several years off to raise my children in Tulsa, Oklahoma before returning to my North Carolina classroom in 2004.

    I received my M.Ed in curriculum and instruction with math emphasis from the University of Texas, Arlington.  I received my AL certification from High Point University. 

    I have been married to Jay for 30 years and we have three amazing children. 

    Seth graduated from NWHS and App State with a major in geology.  He married Shauna, another NWHS graduate! They live in Raleigh with my grand dogs, Boone and Lup. Go MOUNTAINEERS!

    Grace graduated from NWHS and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, majoring in business administration and marketing.  She is an assistant buyer for the CATO corporation in Charlotte.  GO 49ers!

    Faith graduated from NWHS and is currently a student at North Carolina State University majoring in Fashion and Textiles Management with a concentration in Fashion Development and Product Management.!  Go WOLFPACK!

    I love to read, write and research fun curriculum ideas.
