Welcome to Miss Rivera's Math Class!!
This is my first year at Combs High School and I am excited for a great year. I grew up in Gilbert, AZ and moved to Florence my sophomore year of high school. I was fortunate enough to start coaching tennis there a couple years after graduating and had 9 successful seasons. I have been teaching math for 4 years covering Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. This year I will be teaching 5 sections of Geometry. I recently graduated from Northcentral University and I'm currently working on my masters degree.
My teaching philosophy is that everyone is capable of learning, including me. Teaching is more than presenting information. It is the combination of knowing your students, differentiating instruction, preparing students for life after high school, and integrating activities that are not only relevant but appropriate. I learn from my students as much as they learn from me.
