Riley can’t wait to join the team at SCS! She is originally from Lynden, Washington and comes from a family of four with one younger sister. Both her parents are teachers in the Lynden area. She and her family are members at Sonlight Community CRC. After graduating from Lynden Christian, Riley made her way over to the midwest to attend Dordt University in Sioux Center, Iowa and obtain her degree in elementary education and special education, with an additional endorsement in middle school science and language arts. She was also a member of the Dordt Women’s basketball team all four years of college. In her free time, Riley enjoys spending time with family and friends, staying active/playing sports, reading, being outside, and trying new things.
Riley is passionate about connecting with students and wants to guide them toward a life of discipleship. She is excited about the opportunity to invest in the lives of her students and help them understand the purpose they were created with in Christ. She is so excited to see how God works through the lives of her students and her own life in the coming year! She is very thankful to begin her teaching career in such a supportive, Christian community and can’t wait to get started.
