Betsy Riley

Academic Skills Teacher
B.A. University of Colorado
C.C. Connecticut Culinary School
Tennis JV Boys’ Coach


Mrs. Riley comes to Gould describing herself as an everyday adventurer and life-long learner. A graduate of the Ethel Walker School, the University of Colorado, Connecticut Culinary School and school of personal interest and pursuit, she enjoys finding herself in new places, exchanging information with others, supporting the greater good, and watching people learn about themselves as learners. Mrs. Riley entered her first teaching classroom on the ski slope at the age of 14 and continues to coach the Learn to Ski program at Gould. Stepping into her second classroom, she mixed concept, procedure, and good taste with eager culinary students over a hot griddle. Finding a true classroom with walls and spirit lured Mrs. Riley and for the last many, many years, that’s where she’s been. She currently works in the Academic Skills Department, supporting learning strategies and self-guiding concepts with young adults.  Additionally, she coaches JV Boys’ Tennis. Mrs. Riley avidly rides her bike, skis uphill and down, cooks with passion, and enjoys traveling with Mr. Riley, who also works at Gould. She is mom to Carly ‘13 and Tate ‘15.
