Welcome to Zion! My name is Angela Riske and I love teaching Kindergarten at Zion, where I attended school from Kindergarten to 8th grade as a child. I was confirmed at Zion in 8th grade and attended Bay City Western High School, before attending Delta College and graduating from SVSU with a bachelor’s degree in education.
I taught 1st Grade in North Carolina for two years and Kindergarten for ten years at three public schools in Florida. I returned home and succeeded my retiring Kindergarten teacher. After completing the Colloquy Program to become a Lutheran educator in 2019, I became a called worker at Zion. I am blessed to share my faith with my students daily and I enjoy nurturing their love for learning and for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We have an amazing, dedicated, fun, educated, God-fearing staff at Zion and I am incredibly blessed to be a part of this phenomenal team.
I enjoy cheering on our sports teams, helping with the famous apple pie fundraiser, hearing our students sing in church, and volunteering at other events associated with Zion Lutheran Church & School. In my free time I read, shop, and spend time with friends and family. I am blessed to call Zion home!
