Rocío Rivas - Country Day School

Teaching Assistant

Aloha! My name is Rocio Rivas, I am from one of the most beautiful countries in the world: Costa Rica!
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Preschool Education from Universidad Metropolitana.  

I have been working at Country Day School since 1999. I was a Teaching Assistant in Early Childhood for 19 years, and am now a First Grade Teaching Assistant. In 2017, I added After School Activities Program Coordinator to my Country Day School experience. I have various certifications in Health & Safety, First Aid and CPR. I have also attended a variety of additional educational training such as Handwriting Without Tears and Literacy and Math Readiness. 

All of these years working at CDS having been like traveling around the world thanks to the diversity of families who entrust their children’s education.
I am an animal lover and enjoy spending time with my family when I am not at school.
