Mrs. Dianna Ritter
My name is Dianna Ritter. I am married to my wonderful husband Brad, and we have been blessed with three boys who keep us very busy. I absolutely love my job and Muscle Shoals City Schools. I have the opportunity to work with incredible people every day who I also consider my second family. I love spending time with my friends and family, and when I get extra free time, I love going to the beach as often as I can, reading, shopping, and experiencing all things dealing with sports (Roll Tide! and Go Trojans!).
I began my career in education teaching in Madison City Schools in 2002 at Heritage Elementary, where I taught kindergarten and second grades. I was then very fortunate to get a job closer to home at Highland Park Elementary in 2004. I taught first grade for several years until I decided to branch out and began working at the University of North Alabama as a specialist for the Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative (AMSTI). It was then that I found my passion for curriculum and instruction and training teachers through professional development, working with teachers and other professionals across the state to improve and grow our public schools. A few years later, and after having my children, a chance for me to come back home to Muscle Shoals City Schools presented itself, and I jumped at the opportunity.
I started in my current role as the Instructional Partner for Webster and Highland Park Elementary Schools in 2015. I can honestly say I look forward to coming to work every day. I get to work with hands-down some of the most dedicated and driven educators around. I consider it a privilege to work side-by-side with them each day as we work to make our schools and entire district better and better every year. I am so proud of where I work and to be a part of this incredible school system and community.
