Ms. Meg Rivera

I have been a member of the Leyden staff since 2009 as a School Social Worker.  I currently work primarily with East Leyden's General Education students.  Prior to coming to East Leyden, I was a group home worker at an emergency shelter for teen boys.  It was through my work here that I realized how much I enjoy working with adolescents and I decided to pursue my degree in Social Work.   In addition to my role as School Social Worker, I have been the Assistant Coach for Leyden's Orchesis since 2013.  This allows me to combine my passion for working with adolescents and my love of dance.
