Mr. Riley is a music teacher at Maywood Academy High School. He has earned the respect of many teachers, staff and students. Unfortunately, over the past few years unpleasant events have happened to him. Despite all that has happened, he has continued to do what he loves the most, to teach music.

Today, another distasteful event happened to Mr. Riley. Many of you have seen the video, which I will not post here. And sadly, he was handcuffed and was sent to jail.

Those who want to donate for his bail and or lawyers please do so and share. All of what is donated will go to him.

We all may have mixed feelings about what happened. But please do know that this is not the first time that Mr. Riley is attacked; physically or verbally.  He is a great person and a great teacher.

Update: as of November 3rd, 2018

Mr. Riley was released earlier today. However, I will keep this GoFundMe because he is going to need all the help he can get. Be mindful that the school district is looking at dismissing him and I would not doubt if the student's parents are looking into pressing criminal charges. I am sure Mr. Riley will need money to pay any fines, fees and lawyers.  For those who continue to donate, Thank you!


My name is Cecilia Diaz Jimenez and I am a Maywood resident. I also work for the same school district as Mr. Riley and worked at the same High School from 2015- June 2018. These funds will be spent to lessen any burdens that Mr. Riley may endure during this process. I am trying to get in contact with Mr. Riley to give him access to the donations, but this will take some time as he is probably at home resting. Mr. Riley will have the ultimate decision on how these funds are used and or withdraw.
