Martha Rivera

Spanish Art Teacher



My name is Martha Rivera.  I was born in Los Angeles and grew up in the city of El Monte.  My family is from Zacatecas, Mexico and I love learning and representing my culture.  I I love spending time with my family, especially with my son David Hugo who turned three years old this summer! 

I went to college at UC Santa Cruz and Claremont Graduate University.   I enjoy swimming, biking, art, and I really enjoy reading with my son. One of my favorite books right now is Niño Wrestles the World by Yuyi Morales! 

I am super excited to start my 12th year teaching in my role as the Art in Spanish Elective Teacher.  This year we will get to revisit topics we began to learn about last year and I cannot wait to see the students get creative with their art.
