Mr. Charles Riley

My name is Charles Riley.  I have over 10 years of teaching experience and have worked in the Rosedale Union School District for 5 years.  I began teaching in 2008 at Centennial Elementary School. I transitioned to Bakersfield City Schools for five years at the middle school level and took the opportunity in 2013 to return to the Rosedale School District teaching fifth grade here at American.

I am married with three wonderful children, who keep us pretty busy outside of school!  My amazing wife, Tonya, is also an educator over at Patriot Elementary School, so we are acutely aware of how important education is to the social, emotional, physical, and educational well-being of children.  

I oversee multiple programs that we offer here at American, including Mustang Valet in the mornings, Power of Play (POP) during the lunch recess, and Safe School Ambassadors.  It is my absolute pleasure to serve our Mustang community as the Dean of Students.
