Welcome to Mrs. Rivera's Classroom! It's going to be a great school year!
Dear 5th Grade Families,
Welcome!! I am so excited to be your child’s 5th Grade teacher this year! In my room, we are going to learn so much and have fun while doing so!
This will be my seventh year at Northeast, but my first year in 5th grade. The past six years I have taught 4th grade, and I couldn't be more excited for this change! I am very familiar Northeast, as I attended here for 5th and 6th grade. I then went on to Sagewood Middle School and Ponderosa High School. I graduated from Hastings College in Nebraska with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. My husband, John, and I have been married for five years. We have a one and half year old son, Lucas, who is our pride and joy! We are overjoyed with him and spend every moment we can loving up on him. We also have a five year old dog, Samson, who keeps us on our toes! As a family, we love spending time outdoors, exploring local parks and trails, cooking, spending time with family, going to Rockies games, and watching new movies.
I hope your child is ready for a lot of engaging and fun activities to explore this year. We will explore different genres of books and learn the craft of writing. We will dive into exciting projects throughout the year through various PBL projects.
I believe that all students are capable of learning and are able to succeed in and out of the classroom. I cannot wait to teach many engaging activities that will allow the students to excel and have fun. I plan to keep the students on their toes and continuously moving and learning!
Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. I’d love to hear from you. I’m looking forward to meeting each and everyone of you! Enjoy the rest of your summer, and I will see you all soon!
