Ms. Briseyda Rivera

Hello everyone! My name is Briseyda Rivera. I usually go by Bri for short. I am currently a student in CSULA finishing my Teaching Credential and Masters Degree in special education. Through my school I received the amazing opportunity to work along side Ms. Elliott as my teacher mentor for this new upcoming 20/21 school year! 
A little about me: I was raised in Long Beach walking distance to the beach so I grew up being a beach lover! Any activity near the beach is my happy place. This includes running, bicycling, roller skating, etc! I also just love to be outdoors with nature. During my undergraduate career I studied the brain and behavior and received my degree in Neuroscience. I am currently a Registered Behavior Technician and I have been working with students in special education for over three years as a Behavior Interventionist. These past years working with students in special education have been extremely rewarding. Helping students achieve goals that make a difference in their lives, as well as their family’s lives, helped me realize that teaching is where my heart truly is. 
I am very happy to be a part of the Hamilton team and start this new year with you all and I am so excited to embark on this new journey with Ms. Elliott! Let's have an amazing year.
