Degrees and Certifications:

Mary Riley

I am so excited to start my third year at SRE as a part of the Falcon family.  This amazing community has definitely made me feel welcome.  I can't wait to see what we can accomplish as we work together to help our students reach high levels of success in both academics and social/emotional learning.  

I grew up in Liberty, MO.  I then earned my Bachelor's degree in Vocal Music Education from Northwest Missouri State University and my Masters in School Leadership from Baker University. I started my career as a music teacher in Liberty, MO. I then headed to SMSD where I was a music teacher, middle school assistant principal intern and then spent 6 years as an elementary principal.

On a personal note, my husband Tyler and I have one daughter.  Hallie Grace will be five years old in September and is full of energy.  In the summer, we love to go to Clinton lake or the pool and we try to find any opportunity to head to the beach.  We also love to spend time with family and friends whenever possible.  

After 20 years in education, I am so glad that my path finally brought me to your school community. I look forward to an awesome second year at SRE.  Thank you for sharing your kids with us each day.
