Welcome to Art
Hi! My name is Melissa Riley and this is my 26th year teaching Art at St Pius!! I earned both my Bachelor and Masters degrees in Art Education from The College of Saint Rose. After all these years I still love teaching art! This year I will be teaching Kindergarten through 8th grade. Teaching such a wide age range is very exciting. Not only do I get to know the children really well, it is so rewarding to watch them as their creativity and skills grow over the years.
When I am not teaching I keep busy with my family. My husband, my two sons and I enjoy going on bike rides and vacationing at Loon Lake. When I am creative at home I make signs to give as gifts, design floral bouquets for special occasions and give painting parties for kids.
