Riley School is losing 64 years of teaching experience this Spring. Two beloved teachers are retiring, taking those years and a lot of happy memories with them. They also leave behind many happy memories and good friends. XXXConnie Marsh has taught at Riley for 33 years. She began teaching junior high math for eight years. Then she switched to K through eighth grade physical education. Most recently she’s taught physical education to first through fifth graders and algebra to eighth graders.

“The students keep it fun,” Marsh declares. She’s especially enjoyed teaching at a small school because she’s been able to see students progress through the years. She plans to do more traveling now that she’s retired.

Sharon Dunker, has enjoyed teaching at Riley School, too. She calls the 31 years she’s taught kindergarten there “an important chapter in my life.” She names the experience of teaching the children of former students “interesting,” and notes that these parents are a great support of this small community school.

Dunker is looking forward to being a full time grandma in the next chapter of her life.

Thank you and congratulations to these two dedicated educators
