Mrs. Marchese

Hello Riley Racers!  I am Claire Marchese and I would like to welcome you to one of the finest elementary schools in the Vigo County School Corporation!  It is an honor and a privilege for me to be the principal at Riley Elementary School.

I am blessed to have an amazing family.  I have been married to my best friend,  Neil, since 1976!  I have a fantastic son, Stephen, a beautiful daughter-in-law, Darci,  and two stellar grandsons, Max and Leo.  I also have an amazing four-legged buddy named Jack.    

I am delighted to say I have been the principal at Riley since 2010!  Time flies!  Prior to being an elementary principal,  I taught eighth grade language arts and was assistant principal and principal of Chauncey Rose Middle School.  I am very proud to work with our students and staff on behalf of the Vigo County School Corporation.

I am a lifelong resident of Terre Haute and spent my elementary and secondary school years in the Vigo County School System.  I received a BA in English at DePauw University, my teaching license at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, and my Masters and Administrators Licenses at Indiana State University.  I feel the education I received has made me a lifelong learner!

I invite you on behalf of our entire school community to spend an exciting year filled with marvelous learning experiences at Riley.  We are Riley Racers, ready to race through a great school year!
