Welcome back to another great school year!
I am looking forward to an awesome year with our middle school students and staff. This year students are set to have a blast in social studies and become better individuals with our goals and standards at Horizon Montessori.
Some history about me
My name is Miguel Rivera. I was born in Mexico and migrated to the United States at the young age of 7. I have lived most of my life here in the Valley. I attended multiple elementary schools before finally settling at Alvarez Elementary in McAllen. My middle school years were spent at Lincoln Middle School. I was a Warrior for my four years of high school at Nikki Rowe and graduated in 2003. That same year I left for the Navy and served over 8 years. I traveled the world and saw many countries during my time in the military.
I decided to exit the Navy in 2011 and continue my education, as well as to being closer to my daughter. I began my college career at South Texas College where I received my Associates Degree in Kinesiology. After that I continued my Bachelor Degree at UTRGV. I graduated in 2016, Magna Cum Laude. Soon after graduating I became certified in both, Physical Education (EC - 12) and Social Studies (6 - 12).
I have worked for the districts of PSJA, Sharyland, and McAllen ISD before landing at Horizon Montessori. It has been an awesome 6 months so far and I am looking forward to many more in the future.
As a teacher, I believe we are life long learners so I am looking forward to teaching and learning along side your children this year.
