Welcome to the Busy Bees
Mrs. Cessna & Ms.Riggs
Welcome to SME and to Mrs. Cessna's "Busy Bees". This is my third year at South Mebane and my second year teaching kindergarten. I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2001 with a degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Reading. After teaching fourth grade for three and a half years I left the classroom to start my family. My husband Jason and I have been married for sixteen years and we have three children, Benjamin is fourteen, Jack is eleven, and Olivia is eight. All three of my children attended SME and Olivia is a current SME students. My first year at SME I worked with the third grade team as an instructional assistant, and the five years prior to that I taught Pre-K at the Graham Presbyterian Church.
When making the decision to move to North Carolina from Pennsylvania I was immediately drawn to the school culture here at SME and knew that this school was where my children would not just receive a wonderful education but they would thrive in this environment. South Mebane truly is a place filled with love, laughter, and learning and it is an honor to get to return to the classroom in such an amazing school. It is my goal to keep the lines of communication open between home and school and to teach your children to my fullest potential each and every day so that they may be successful and reach their fullest potential. I'm looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your children!
