Mrs. Amy V Rivera
Hello! My name is Amy Rivera and I am very excited to be part of the team at John A. Sciole Elementary! I am especially happy to be your child’s teacher, and am looking forward to a year full of learning and fun!
I’d like to begin by telling you a little about myself. I graduated from D’Youville College with a dual Undergraduate Degree in Special and Elementary Education, and from Medaille College with a Master’s Degree in Literacy. I came to Sciole with 13 years of experience as a Special Education Teacher at Buffalo Hearing and Speech Center and South Buffalo Charter School. My husband and I are proud parents of three wonderful and busy children - Madeline, Kevin, and Grace. I am a soccer mom, hockey mom, and swim mom! In my free time I enjoy reading, biking, and relaxing at our cottage near the beach.
We have a great year ahead of us! This promises to be an exciting year for your child, filled with new independence and increasing abilities.
