Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lynette Riggs - Principal
I certainly enjoy being the principal at Mountainside Elementary School! It is beautiful here, and the children, parents, and staff are amazing.
I am a believer in the transformative power of education, so it makes sense that I would become a teacher and administrator. As a student, I loved school—it was an interesting, fun, and safe place to be. As a teacher, I began my career at Logan High School where I taught English: British, World, and American Literature, Ethnic Literature and ESL, poetry and writing, plus concurrent enrollment courses. I loved my job and I loved my students!
I have also served as an administrator and principal at Mount Logan Middle School, Sky View High School, Lincoln Elementary School, and as an adjunct professor at Utah State University. My B.S degree is in English and Music Education; my M.S is in English and School Administration; and my Ph.D. is in Curriculum and Instruction.
Indeed, I am lucky to be at Mountainside now. I am still a life-long learner, and I am learning much from the good people around me.
