What I love about my job:
When I was in the classroom, I loved working with students who struggled with academics and/or behavior. I now work with teachers and have learned so much from being in their classrooms. There are great teachers at Riverside, and I enjoy the collaboration opportunities I have with them.
Why I chose Riverside:
My own children attended Riverside, and I saw the excellent education they received. I knew and loved the elementary principal at the time and also many of the teachers. I really wanted the opportunity to teach with and learn from them.
What makes me PROUD to be a Bulldog:
I love the sense of community at Riverside. Everyone works together to create a positive and nurturing environment in which teachers and students can learn and grow. I also love that teachers and students are recognized for their efforts and accomplishments!
