Hector Rivera

After being a substitute teacher for SFS, I’m happy to finally be teaching here full time!

I earned my BA in English Literature in 2011 from Hunter College. I then studied Early Childhood Education at City College in San Francisco while substituting at SFS. I went on to work at the Sweet Peas Preschool for three years in a team-teaching setting much like the South Class, then transitioned to Pacific Primary School where I was directly responsible for the afternoon programming. While working in that capacity, I implemented a variety of activities, including integrating science, cooking, art, sensory play, and gross motor activities. Outside of school, I’m a voracious reader who also loves to cook, and enjoy bringing both of those interests to the classroom.
