Ms. Melissa Rivenbark

Welcome! My name is Melissa Rivenbark. This year marks my 3rd year teaching 1st grade and my 6th year at Eastern Elementary School. Prior to being a part of EES, I taught preschool for many years. I have enjoyed my journey, but 1st grade has stolen my heart! 

I graduated from East Carolina in 2004 with a BS in Child Development/Family & Community Services. After many years, I went back to ECU and obtained my license in Elementary Education. When I’m not working with our scholars, I am usually spending time with my 3 sons (Colin-16, Ryan-11, Spencer-8). We love to spend time outside as well as watch movies together. 

I am so excited about going on an amazing journey with you this school year. We have so many exciting things planned for our scholars, and I cannot wait to be a part of them!
