With every new school year, new teachers and new students are brought in. But this year is special, especially after Riverview High School welcomed six new teachers to its team.
Riverview graduate Brianne Taber is one of the new Pre-IB English teachers at RHS who will spend her 2020-21 year teaching freshmen in room 5-114. After a year of being a substitute teacher for the 2019-20 school year, Taber is now teaching full-time. Because many teachers decided to take a leave of absence to protect themselves from the coronavirus, Taber decided to step up.
Although Covid-19 has taken a toll on many activities teachers in the past used to get to know students more personally, Taber is still excited to be back at Riverview this year. After all, both she and her little sister went to RHS for all four years. Following high school, Taber completed her teaching degree and graduated from the University of Florida in Gainesville before returning to where she grew up, Sarasota.
Taber made sure to note her are reading, writing, running, traveling, and most importantly, spending time with friends and family.
“My family is the No. 1 most important thing in my life,” she added.
