Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Katie Riley

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  I am the new school counselor at Marie Schaefer Elementary School.  I am very happy and excited to start the year here. 

Here is a little about me.  I currently live in O’Fallon and I actually attended Marie Schaefer for Jr. High School.  I have two kids that attend other District 90 schools. As a family we enjoy camping and swimming the most but we also enjoy attending all the different events and activities that O’Fallon offers families.  

I was a foster care case manager for 10 years before getting my school counseling certification.  However, I really wanted to work more directly with children. While working on this certification, I interned under one of District 90’s social workers.  After I received my certification I worked for 7 years in an inner city district as a school counselor. 

This year may look and feel different but the staff is still here working hard to make sure you are getting the best education possible. I am here to make sure that their social and emotional needs are being met, even if we have to do it remotely. We love our students and can not wait for school to start. 

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me through email.
