Teacher and Staff Directory

Our teachers are the best in their field.

Many of our teachers have come to teaching as a second, or even third career. They bring varied experience into the classroom. They were drawn to teaching because they can’t imagine doing anything else. At the core of every great teacher is a life-long thirst for knowledge. At River Valley School we foster continuous improvement in our teaching just as we do in our students’ learning. We are preparing children for professions that don’t yet exist.

Teaching has never been more divergent. More exciting. More demanding, More fulfilling.
