Mrs. Irene Rivera



I am Mrs. Rivera and I teach PAP 5th Grade Math here at Leon Sablaturra Middle School. I went to college at New Mexico State University, where I obtained my Bachelors in Economics. While in college I was involved in multiple organizations such as The Financial Management Association and competed in financial market trading competitions. I went on to work in the private sector as a corporate analyst but my heart has always been in teaching. I am currently a certified teacher in all subjects and content and I have been teaching Math and Science for the past three years. I am also ESL certified and working on getting my Bilingual Certification so I may teach in Spanish.

I am a family person, I am a wife, a mom and have a bunch of fur babies and we are getting crowded by the day. That is why my dream is have my own farm eventually. I love nature, sports and I love my job. Its awesome waking up to a job you enjoy and knowing you can make a difference.
