Welcome to Rigsby

It is my pleasure to serve you as principal this year!   This is my 11th year in educational leadership. Prior to becoming principal, I had many leadership experiences including instructional coach and assistant principal at Mary V. Wheeler Elementary School and Bledsoe County High School.  Even with these amazing experiences, I will always be a teacher at heart. I also have 20 years of classroom teaching experience in Bledsoe County Schools both at Mary V. Wheeler Elementary School and Cecil B. Rigsby. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in elementary education grades (K-8) from the University of TN at Chattanooga, a Master’s of Education from Tennessee Technology University, and Educational Specialist from Lee University.  By pursuing lifelong learning, I intend to be an example to students, teachers, and our community that we should never stop learning. 


I am blessed to be the wife of Charlie Hannah and the mother of one inspiring young woman, Abby Hannah.  She is currently seeking to become an audiologist and is pursuing her doctorate at the University of South Alabama. The expectations that I had for my daughter are what I have for your children.   I want to see them excel and become productive human beings, who have ample opportunity to become whatever they want to be when they grow up.   


It is my privilege to lead Cecil B. Rigsby Elementary and the many talented teachers and students here! My goal is to continue to provide a supportive climate and culture at Rigsby Elementary School that is conducive to teaching and learning. By doing so, each individual student and teacher can experience growth to their highest potential. I look forward to interacting with all stakeholders in our school community this year!
