Meet K. Riley


Hi I’m K. Riley- the Principalnerd, I am a principal coach and educational career specialist, I help school leaders reach their educational career goals and I love it. I’ve been a teacher, assistant principal, instructional and principal coach. I know first hand what it is is like to need additional support and not having the resources to get it. When I was an Assistant Principal I can remember how difficult it was to find resources and a network of other APs. It can be frustrating when you feel like you don’t have a voice or sacred space to ask for help. That’s one reason why I created this space to provide assistant principals the essential skills necessary to be a successful school leader.

I look forward to working with you soon!
