Primary School Assistant Teacher

 

Devon Rivkind joined the Fisher Island Day School faculty in 2018 after teaching 1st and 2nd grade at Beacon Hill School in Hollywood, Florida during the past school year.  She creates a positive and culturally diverse classroom where students feel empowered and fully capable in their abilities to succeed.  Devon also focuses on providing a creative space for children where they can feel free to express themselves.  When teaching a lesson, she makes sure to establish clear objectives and ensure that her students are able to make real-life connections.  Additionally, Devon is a firm believer of practicing mindfulness in her classroom to aid her students with paying attention, focusing, and helping them become more aware of their actions and how to take control of how they react to situations that arise.

 

Devon, who was born and raised in Miami, enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, traveling, fashion, and being outdoors. She loves animals and frequently volunteers with local rescue groups to raise money and aid in finding homes for animals in need.

             

Devon graduated from Florida International University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts.
