Welcome to my blog!

Hello everyone.  My name is Pat Riley and I will be student teaching at Amundsen High School in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood for the fall of 2010. I will be teaching Contemporary American History, starting just before the Civil War, as I work towards my Type 9 certificate with an endorsement in History and hopefully Business. In my former life, I worked in public relations and business development for a law firm in Chicago, but decided to pursue a career in education. Prior to working in public relations and business development, I received a B.S. in Kinesiology with a focus in Sports Marketing from Indiana University.

I look forward to keeping you abreast of my student teaching this fall as well as other thoughts and comments related to education.
