About Me

Educational History:

Mrs. Riley graduated with honors from University of Texas at Tyler with a BA in English. She minored in speech communication and competed nationally on the school’s debate team. 

Family Information:

My husband is a retired Army combat veteran who is graduating this Spring with a BS in Construction Management. I couldn’t be more excited for him. My three daughters are as different from each other as their ages, with one exception – they are all three feisty and they make me proud of them. 

Personal Information:

When Mrs. Riley isn’t teaching….

I love to read good books. Dystopian novels, poetry books, biographies, neuroscience, history – I read almost everything.

I try to learn something new every summer. One summer it was embroidery. Another, it was kniting. Sometimes, it’s something other than crafting. 

Coffee is a joy to me and so is good chocolate. But not as much of a joy as my children and my family. Spending time with them is what’s truly most precious to me. We like to play board games together, or sit on the porch talking in the evenings, or go somewhere together on vacation We work together on my brother’s vineyard or enjoy talking about what we’ve read or watched lately.

Listenwise

Go to listenwise.com and sign in using google then your school email. I’ve synced to our google classroom. These are GREAT assignments you listen to. you’ll have a short quiz. It’s more about learning to listen and raising your reading level. The vocabulary can be higher at times. If you don’t listen, you’ll know it! I’ve posted some threads on the classroom stream for you to respond to when you finish one article. These have due dates but like I said, they aren’t long. I think you’ll you’ll like them. 

Update

I’ve got a Marco Polo video waiting on you when you join my Marco Polo. Here’s the link. https://marcopolo.me/s/aprill-r2 

Do that first then use it or Remind to let me know if you’re having trouble with Google Classrooms. Those links should take you directly there and you only need to log in with your school email and password. 

Setting up Google Classroom and Sites

Google Classroom and classes in all sites are UP!! Look at the links above if you need them. My marco polo is set up. I’ll use it to send out group videos to address common questions everyone might have and teach using short videos. Y’all can use it to send me questions y’all have too. I’ll be able to SHOW y’all stuff that way.
