Kindergarten Lead Teacher
Holly Riley first joined the CWC Hollywood family in 2014 when her son enrolled in 4th grade. She was drawn to CWC’s diverse community, project-based learning, and commitment to the arts. As an experienced teacher, she soon began working here as a long-term Substitute Lead Teacher at Kindergarten. She is thrilled to be stepping into the Lead Teacher position as part of the Kindergarten team.
Holly lives in Glendale with her husband, daughter, and son, who continued on as part of the pioneer class at the CWC Silver Lake 6th-8th grade. Holly grew up in Northern New Mexico and came to California to study at the University of California at Santa Barbara. She lived in Spain for a year as she earned her bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Latin American & Iberian Studies and later received her teaching credential through the LAUSD District Intern Program. She recently earned her Master’s of Education in Early Childhood Education through Champlain College.
In her spare time, Holly loves to travel with her family, watch science fiction, and explore Los Angeles!
