From Mrs. Viverette………
I am very excited and inspired by this new opportunity to serve Middle School students and their families as they navigate this three-year period of intense social, emotional, physical, and academic growth. Early in my teaching career, I discovered the joy of working with young adolescents—I love their independence, enthusiasm, curiosity, and sense of humor. My passion lies in building and mentoring relationships while fostering a happy, safe, and welcoming environment where everyone feels informed, included, supported, challenged, and motivated to reach their full potential.
