Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Summer Riley
I am thrilled to be part of the Kimmel Farm team this year. I was born and raised in sunny California. I moved to North Carolina at the age of 18 to run track and pole vault at Wake Forest. I met my husband that first week at school. He was also on the track team! We fell in love, got married, started teaching (Mr. Riley teaches science at Mt. Tabor High School), and have a beautiful, energetic and sometimes crazy brood of four that really keep us hopping. I gave up teaching full time when the twins were born and instead starting coaching, track, cross country, and even field hockey for a few years. I have been fortunate to have had the last 10 years raising our family and am just now getting back to teaching. When I am not dreaming up music activities, planning art projects, playing on Pinterest, and enjoying my family, or taxiing them somewhere, I am coaching a sport or teaching sewing, or tutoring kids in reading. I absolutely love working with kids and adults who are willing to stretch into more.
