Meet the Teacher

Hi! My name is Mrs. Rivera and I am going to be your child's first grade teacher. This will be my 6th year teaching first grade at GC Burkhead. I have also taught kindergarten and pre-k. 

I graduated from East Hardin High School, received my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Western Kentucky University and my master's degree as a reading and writing specialist from the University of Cumberland. 

I grew up in Elizabethtown and have been married to my husband for 25 years. We have three daughters, two in college at UK and our oldest is now finished and working (yeah!!). Our family also includesa dog, Molly and a cat, Abbie. When our family is together we love to travel, hike, watch movies, sit by the pool, go to church and root for our favorite basketball team, the WILDCATS (well, we are a house divided, because dad likes the Tarheels surprise).  

We are also joined in class by Ms. Lisa Burnett, my assistant, and Mrs. Kim Kerr, our Title 1 assistant. They will join our classroom in either math or reading and during our intervention block to allow us to have small group instruction time. They are a tremendous help to me and to our students!

I can't wait to spend the next school year with your child. Please email me anytime and please sign up for Remind 101 (see link above). I will send you messages with reminders about what is going on in our classroom frequently and Remind chat is activated, so feel free to contact me through this site as well.
