Aileen Hagen-Riehle - Instructor
Aileen is a trained Artist and Dancer, who has been teaching the Arts to kids for almost 20 years. She started out teaching an Art, Music, and Dance Class for a local studio before having kids of her own. She then joined a Dance Studio where she was able to teach different dance forms to a variety of ages. This lead to teaching a dance class at the Montessori School where her children attended and she also took on substitute teaching. When her children entered the Open Classroom, she became an Art Co-oper, an Art Committee member and continued substitute teaching. Aileen taught various art classes at the OC for 10 years and also took a turn running the Art Committee for a few of those years. For the past 2 years, she has been assistant teaching in a Special Ed. classroom in the SCL School District. She has spent her summers running a Summer camp for school aged children, where she has continued to teach Art classes. Aileen is looking forward to the opportunity to teach Art classes here at the Academy of Creativity.
