Riggleman will be filling the position made vacant by Courtney Krahn’s departure for the Addison Central School District, where she will be director of teaching and learning and which is where she lives.

Riggleman joins the Champlain Valley School District from Manassas, Virginia, where she has been a special assignment administrator, implementing individualized restorative practices, carrying out district policies, supporting educators and performing many of the administrative functions expected of an assistant principal. Before that, she was a science lead teacher and developed science curriculum with the Prince William County Schools.

Riggleman earned a Bachelor of Science from Longwood College and a Master of Education from Western Governors University.

“I am really looking forward to getting to know Amanda and showing her how special Charlotte Central School is,” principal Jen Roth said. “Her instructional background is based in the sciences. I am hoping together we can create learning and foster stewardship for our campus and surrounding natural resources.”
