Miss Modestah Rivera

Welcome to 6th Grade Math!

I'm Mrs. Modestah Rivera. This is my first year at Highland Middle and I am super excited!

I grew up in Asheville, NC and recently graduated from Campbell Univeristy in December of 2020. I recieved my bachelors in psychology and realized that teaching is truly my passion and something I have always enjoyed. Math has always been a subject area that has had my heart which is why I switched form 4th grade to 6th grade. Prior to teaching here at Highland Middle, I was a 4th grade teacher at Overhills Elementary school. I enjoy being able to support children on a daily basis as individuals and with math. I'm currently working on my masters degree in mathematics at Western Governers Univerity. I also have a wonderful toddler and his sidekick, (our dog) who's a sweet aussie doodle!
