Principal's Message

July 27, 2022

Dear Tomás Rivera Families,

It is with great honor that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Tomás Rivera Elementary.  I am excited to have the opportunity to lead a school with amazing students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community. I feel very fortunate to be part of this school and to be able to partner with Mr. Jamison Luke, Assistant Principal, and the rest of the Rivera staff to continue the great work that is already underway.

My professional background is rooted in science, education, and leadership. The 2022-23 school year will mark my 16th year in education. I have had the privilege of working for the Riverside Unified School District for the past 15 years and have served as a teacher, assistant principal, science coordinator, and interim principal. 

On a personal note, I am a wife to my loving, supportive husband Josh, and a mom to my two boys, Trevor (11) and Nolan (8). As a parent, I always want what is best for my children and will work tirelessly to ensure your children have the best possible experiences here at Rivera Elementary. 

As we begin the new school year, we will work to update you with all the important information like when class lists will be posted and grade-level supply requests as soon as possible. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram @RiveraCoyotes 

Below are a few important dates. Please note that our start and end time for school has shifted 5 minutes.
