Congratulations Mrs. Rivera, 2023 Chesterfield County Teacher of the Year
I often joke that you will hear Sra. Rivera long before you see her. Truth be told, it really isn’t a joke. Every day, she brings big energy and excitement to our building in the form of laughter, music and dance. As our Spanish resource teacher, her lessons engaged and educated students on different cultures. Now as our third-grade dual language immersion Spanish teacher, she is helping our students grow in their bilingualism, biliteracy and appreciation of culture. She also has helped our overall school population feel seen, heard and celebrated. Our once-shy Spanish speakers are now showing off their bilingualism and proudly sharing more about their cultures.
