Mr. Ted Rydzewski

Hello!  Welcome! 

I am so excited about teaching 4th Grade here at Walter Miller Elementary School and this is my fifth year of doing exactly that.  It is truly an honor and pleasure being your child's teacher!  

I graduated from Penn State (2011) with an associate's degree in Information Science and Technology and graduated summa cum laude from Drexel University (2014) with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I received my Master's Degree in Education at Gwynedd Mercy University May 7, 2021. I am trained in Responsive Classroom teaching and believe in a student driven classroom. Before coming to Walter Miller, I was assigned to Pearl Buck Elementary for two years where I have taught 3rd and 4th Grade. I did my student teaching at Oliver Heckman. This is my ninth year teaching.  Before coming to Neshaminy School District, I substituted at many schools throughout Bucks County and have taught every subject at every grade!

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling. I am married to my beautiful wife, Kathy, have a son, daughter-in-law, my grandson who turned 2 on November 28th, and two fur babies (kittens) - Finn and Fearless, who we adopted over Winter Break last year from Richboro Rescue.  My wife and I love going to Walt Disney World (going there this summer - woohoo!), reading, golfing, traveling the United States and the world. My beautiful wife retired from teaching (35 years) at Neshaminy (Tawanka Elementary) at the end of the 2021-2022 school year.

Fun facts about me - I did two commercials for Penn State University and two for Drexel University.  This is my second career - I served the citizens of Philadelphia as a police officer before retiring in 2015 with 28.5 years of service.
