Missy Riesterer ~ Bio

I am delighted to begin my 33rd year in education, 31 of which have been with the North Santiam School District. I spent two fabulous decades teaching many different grade levels.  At which time I was asked to be the district’s Literacy Coach. I then was given the opportunity to become the Dean of Students at Sublimity, and have been a school administrator for the past ten years. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to lead and support a passionate staff that works collaboratively to strengthen the academic and social achievement of students and the relationship between home, school, and the community. 

I was raised in Sublimity and attended Sublimity School. I graduated from Stayton High School before going on to earn my bachelor’s degree in Education with a minor in Early Childhood from Oregon State University, where I became a beloved Beaver Believer!. I obtained my master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Policy as well as my Administrator's License from Portland State University.  As you can see I have a vested interest both in the community and in Sublimity School.

My husband Rick and I live outside of Silverton. We have twenty five acres, many of which are planted in Christmas trees. We have two grown children, Bri and Colby.  Bri is a cosmetologist and Colby is a firefighter/paramedic. Both have gotten married in the past year and we are super excited to have our son and daughter in law join our family. Outside of school I enjoy exercising. boating, skiing, reading, and learning new things but my favorite thing is spending quality time with my family!  I am blessed to be a part of such a caring community. Thank you for allowing me to be the leader of Sublimity School!
