Hello from Mrs. Garrison

Hello! I am so thankful for the opportunity to teach your child. This is my second year at Riley Elementary, but I have been working with children in various settings for 15 years. I am a SMWC graduate with a dual licensure in preschool through third grade and mild intervention.  I love incorporating play based learning and character education into my teaching.

“Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.” – Fred Rogers

“Intelligence plus character- that is the true goal of education.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

School Pledge


  • Today is a new day. I will act in a safe and healthy way. I will respect the rights of others. I will treat all property with respect. I will take responsibility for my learning. Today I will be the best me I can be.
