Mr. Giedd, Ripon High’s newest Spanish teacher, was selected by the student body as the staff A.C.E. of Month.  

“I was excited [to know that I was chosen] because it means that [the students] had a really good first impression of me,” Mr. Giedd said.

Those who nominated Mr. Giedd  as the A.C.E. of the Month complimented him on his friendliness and said that he made learning Spanish easy.  This is his first year teaching since he got his credentials at Oral Roberts University in Oklahoma.
