Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Laine Riley
Welcome to the John Nowlin Elementary Music webpage. The music room at JNE is a fun and busy place. Here we learn to sing, play rhythms, read music, move and create! I am Mrs. Riley. I think that I have the best job in the world because I get to combine two of my favorite things: teaching and music. I have been teaching for fifteen years, and this is my sixth year as a John Knowlin Knight. I received my Bachelor's in Music Education from Phillips University, and my Master's in Music Education with a choral conducting emphasis from Virginia Commonwealth University. I am currently taking classes to earn my Education Specialist Degree through William Woods University. I enjoy singing, conducting, playing the piano and the pipe organ. In my spare time I love to hang out with my family, run and bake. My husband and I have two daughters, one is a junior in college and the other is a freshman in the Blue Springs District. I hope you enjoy your time in the music room at JNE!
