Mrs. Ami Rivera
My name is Ami Rivera and it is a pleasure and honor to be a part of the Dragon family at Dove Creek Elementary. My desire to become a teacher and make a difference in the lives of children began many years ago as I watched my grandmother make a difference in the lives of students and then I got the privilege of being one of her students in a college math class. I completed my Bachelor's in Elementary Education at Mercer University and my Master's in Elementary Math Education at The University of Georgia. I also hold reading and gifted endorsements and am pursuing an endorsement in Computer Science. I began teaching in Oconee County in 2015 after teaching in Griffin, GA and Dayton, OH when my husband's (Kevin) job moved us to the area. We have 2 children, Kaleb and Zoe who both attend schools in Oconee County. We can't think of a better place to raise our kids and have them obtain a wonderful education than Oconee County Schools. Building relationships with my students and parents is the key to success in the classroom. I love taking each student from where they are and guiding each of them to their fullest potential.
