Mrs. Kathleen Rivers

I've been teaching at Harnett Primary for more than 25 years (they can't get rid of me!) 

I was a successful and creative 1st-grade teacher for 16 years. I LOVED it! But my creative side needed a new challenge, so I decided to switch to teaching Art, and I've never looked back! 

Instead of teaching and making connections with 22-23 students, I get to care about and build relationships with over 500 children each year!

These kids are unique and funny, innovative, and creative!

I grew up in South Florida and attended the University of Florida (GO GATORS!). My husband, Carlos, and son Carter are the rocks in my life. Both are loving, caring, and incredibly supportive of their wife/mommy.
