  • Meet Mrs. Rivera!!
    Hello! My name is Briana Rivera and this will be my second year of teaching! I previously taught kindergarten last year at Joy Elementary. I graduated in May of 2019 from Valparaiso University with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a minor in mathematics. I live here in Michigan City with my husband, Troy, and our dogs, Titus and Josie. I enjoy reading and spending time with my friends and family. I am so excited to begin my teaching career at Joy! This is going to be a fantastic year!
