Riley, Anna

Hello My Name Is
Anna L. Riley


This is my third year teaching in Hempstead, but my fourteenth year as a theatre arts teacher and my seventh year teaching speech. I have directed nine stage plays for the UIL One Act Play competitions, and a countless number of school productions through the years. I love what I do!

Aside from teaching I'm a performance Poet and Actress. I write poetry, stage plays, screenplays, and am currently trying my hand at a novel. Writing is my gift!


Fulfilling my theatrical passion as an actress, poet, and director is truly a Blessing. As a teacher, seeing that same passion for theater and performing arise in my students is the ultimate gift!
