About the Teacher, Susan Rivas


I have been teaching for 30 years. I love teaching at the middle school level because of the connections I make with my students. I enjoy the creativity and the spontaneity that my classroom promotes. My students are smart and motivated so teaching is very exciting! Additionally, I have provided Staff Development in Technology for Live Oak School District, Pajaro Valley Unified School District, and North Monterey County School District. In the past I have taught Technology Classes for U.C.S.C. Extension. I have a variety of teaching credentials which include: a Multiple Subjects Credential, Single Subject Credential in Spanish, Physical Education, and Health Science with Supplementary Authorization in Computer Applications & Concepts. I also have a Bicultural Biliterate Credential in Spanish/English as well as a Master's Degree in International Business Administration. My family lives in Live Oak and we enjoy spending time together. I also enjoy reading, swimming, skiing, and traveling.
