This is Ms. Ricter's fifth year as a librarian in Eanes ISD. She previously spent five years teaching second and third grade at Laurel Mountain Elementary in Round Rock ISD. When she was given the opportunity join the wonderful Barton Creek Elementary community, she jumped at the chance to return to her roots.

Ms. Ricter grew up in Austin and had the pleasure of attending Eanes ISD schools for both elementary (Valley View, Barton Creek) and middle school (Hill Country). After graduating from high school, Ms. Ricter relocated to Pennsylvania to attend college at Bucknell University, where she majored in theatre and English. In addition to her bachelor’s degree, she has a master’s in elementary education from Texas State University and a graduate certificate in school librarianship from Texas Woman's University.

In her free time, Ms. Ricter enjoys trying out new restaurants, going to plays and musicals, reading, traveling, and playing with her pets. She and her husband, Brian, have three cats, all of whom they treat like furry children. Their names are Jim, Pam, and Rosie.
