Early Childhood and Elementary Education; Educational Leadership '99
Bank Street is an intellectual hotbed of learning. It stays true to its mission in the nurturing of lifelong learning.
Evi Rivera-Williams has been part of the Bank Street community since she was 4 years old when she started as a School for Children student. She has been at Bank Street for the past 12 years as a current teacher. She enjoys so much at Bank Street, but what stands out is the joy she feels when she walks through the building and hears, sees, and feels meaningful and purposeful learning happening—learning that will have an impact in the moment and in the future. Evi is a full-time mom of three as well as a dancer. She’s formally trained as a ballet dancer but has learned that she loves learning all forms of dance.
I was inspired to become a teacher because I worked with children from a very young age. Bank Street is an intellectual hotbed of learning. I decided to come back to Bank Street for two masters’ in early childhood and then in leadership in education in order to better teach the children we work with and the student teachers and associates we work with. One thing I appreciate about Bank Street is that it stays true to its mission in the nurturing of lifelong learning.
