Lissette Rivera joined the Brilla Veritas team in 2018. Ms. Rivera graduated from the College of Mount Saint Vincent with high honors and studied Psychology and Sociology. She has always had a passion for teaching and learning about the world around her. Beginning her Brilla career as a Seton Teaching Fellow, Ms. Rivera loved the scholars and community so much, that she decided to stay on full-time as a teacher! This year, she is so excited to join the third grade team! As a Bronx native, Ms. Rivera feels very passionately about the community she serves and is committed to helping students thrive. During her free time, Ms. Rivera is probably volunteering or going to a good concert!
