Hello, my name is Melissa Rivera Lara and this is my 10th year of teaching.  I graduated from The University of Texas-Permian Basin with a B.A. in Child & Family Studies.  My Texas teaching certifications are in Early Childhood-4th grade and 4th grade-8th grade.  Additionally, I have had extensive training in the Montessori curriculum.  I grew up and graduated from Colorado City.  My husband and I have 5 boys (Damian, Dominic, Davin, DJ, and David).  In my spare time I love to relax and spend quality time with my family.  I also LOVE coffee and chocolate!
