Teacher Tuesday

TeacherTuesday: September 3, 2019

For this #TeacherTuesday, we are focusing on Ray Riley, a health and physical education teacher at Warwick Elementary School and member of the Central Bucks Education Association. Teaching is Ray’s second career – he worked as a television journalist for almost a decade, which he enjoyed, but it never felt like a calling. He decided to do something meaningful with his career and turned to teaching. The moment he stepped in front of his first class, he says, “I knew I was in the right place. Even more so now almost 10 years later seeing some of those kids graduating college and starting successful lives is just awesome.” Ray is quick, though, to credit his colleagues. “I’m always leaning on and learning from other teachers in my building and in the profession. I think what my students get from me is what they get from every teacher I know. We all care very deeply for our students and their well-being. We all try our best to make lessons fun and engaging. What they get from me is a teacher who tries real hard to make their experience in my class the best it can possibly be.”
