Mr. Rivera



Hi, my name is Michael Rivera.

I am excited to return for my 4th year at Aurora Academy Charter as the 7/8 Writing teacher and my 9th year teaching.

I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. I received my BA in Education, with a focus in Secondary English, from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette in 2013 - Geaux Cajuns! I also received a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Holy Cross in 2018. I began my teaching career back home in New Orleans, where I taught 8th/9th grade English Language Arts for 5 years, along with 9th/10th grade ELA for 1 year.

I moved to Colorado in 2018 and have loved every minute of my time here. I love to hike and explore the mountains. My passions include photography, hiking, rock climbing, music, running, and sports. I follow the Saints, the Rockies, Manchester United, and the US National Soccer teams. I also love coffee, fantasy sports, traveling, and writing.

I look forward to a great year with our Aurora Academy Charter community.
