Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Lisa Riley. This is my 20th year teaching (15 years in Minnesota and 5 years in Marion County Public Schools (I have been at Osceola Middle School for the past 2 years supporting students)! I graduated from the University of Minnesota State, and I have taught English Language Arts, Reading, and Social Studies!
I am married, have 4 wonderful children and am truly blessed with 9 grandchildren, and one more in October will make 10!!! I love teaching, and I love my family. When I'm not at school I enjoy bike riding, kayaking, swimming, reading, baking and spending time with family and friends. This year I have the great privilege of being an English Language Arts and Social Studies Teacher.
The most important thing you need to know about me---I show up every day giving it my all. I am dedicated to helping students reach their academic potential, but I equally am committed to being a positive role model that puts smiles on faces. I will work hard for my students all year, but I EXPECT them to work hard for me in return. We are in this together.
All assignments for students, both virtual and in person, will be on your student desktop under Microsoft Teams. You can find help for using Microsoft Teams by going to MCPS Home Page.
I look forward to a wonderful school year!
