Our Welcome To Sanford Lee County Teacher of the Week is Beth Rives, from Tramway Elementary. Ms. Rives is a kindergarten teacher at Tramway, where she has served for the past 18 years of her 27 year career. Her degree from Appalachian State University is in Child Development, with an Elementary Education Concentration and Minor in Psychology.
Ms. Rives believes that every child has potential and it is her job to bring it out, and help each of her students be as successful as they can be. Her goal is to meet each child where he or she is, and take them as far as they can go in their year together. She believes that children can be successful, as long as they know she believes in them and will never give up on them.
Ms. Rives notes, “My love and passion has always been educating children and seeing them grow and learn. In my opinion, it is the most rewarding career, and I have been blessed time and time again over the years by my students.” In her spare time, Ms. Rives enjoys reading, family time and going to the beach.
