Mary Rivera

Academic Coach

Hi! I'm Mary and I am beyond excited to help your children excel and achieve greatness in school! I am originally from Mesa, Arizona, and I am attended high school here in Provo. Growing up, I absolutely loved school and I hope I can help the kids here at Franklin Discovery Academy love it too! My teachers were, and still are, some of my greatest role models; they instilled in me a huge passion for education. In high school, I participated in my school's preschool lab for three years and had an internship at two of Giant Step's programs for young children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Currently, I am a full-time student at Utah Valley University majoring in Behavioral Science, and I'm hoping to be accepted into the Social Work program this year. My end goal is to become an Licensed Clinical Social Worker for children and teens, and work on public policy reform for many different issues. 

I am a hard working, dedicated, quirky individual, and I love to have fun and make everything enjoyable! When I'm not working or at school, I like to discover new music, shops, restaurants and scenic locations with friends. I am also an avid thrift shopper because I love everything one-of-a-kind! 

Thank you for sharing your children with us, and again, I know this year will be a great adventure!
