Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Rivas


 Dear Families, 

Welcome Back! Thank you for entrusting your child to my care. I look forward to the year ahead with great enthusiasm.

This is my 19th year teaching.  I hold a Master's Degree in Elementary Education, Bilingual Education, and Special Education.  I hold Teaching Certifications for grades K through 6 from the State of New York, and AMS Montessori Elementary Certification for ages 6 through 9 from CMTE New York.  I am a mother of two grown children and grandmother to two beautiful grandchildren. 

I am looking forward to meeting with you and your child (remotely and in person when safe).. I am committed to optimizing this year for your child and I ask for your continued partnership to support your child as they begin this very important year of school.  

Remember to have your child read and write about what they read daily if possible!  First graders can draw and write a sentence or two.

It is also a good time to teach them to TIE THEIR SHOELACES!  Thank You!


Mrs. Rivas
