Mrs. Kelly R. Bedenbaugh

I have been teaching at RS-M for the past thirty years, and I love it!  I teach English IIICP and Honors, AP Literature and Composition, and Yearbook.  At RSM I am the English Department chair.  I also help with the Beta club and the National English Honor Society.

This summer I plan to take some courses to keep busy as I work on updating my AP curriculum.  I also am excited about the upcoming school year.

I graduated from the Columbia College Honor's College in 1990.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in English Education from Columbia College and a Master's in Literacy and Reading from Walden University.
I am married to Terry Bedenbaugh and we have two sons.  Samuel graduated from RSM High in 2014 and recieved his degree in Physical Education from Coastal Carolina in 2018. He is now a teacher at RSM Middle School.  William graduated from RSM High in 2016 and is now a 2020 graduate from Newberry College with a degree in Criminal Justice.
I truly believe that all students can learn, and it is my job to help the students of Ridge Spring- Monetta achieve success.
Students and parents can reach me at my email: or by calling the main office of RSM High at (803)685-2100.
