Ms. Maria Rives

My name is Maria Rives, and I am excited to be teaching AP World History at Austin High School this year, especially since I am a graduate of AHS!  This will be my thirteenth year teaching, and I have previously taught US History and AP Psychology in Houston, as well as online Introductory, Developmental, and Child Psychology courses for freshmen and sophomores at Angelo State University.  I graduated from the University of Houston in 2011 with a degree in History, and I earned a master's degree in Applied Psychology from Angelo State University.  I love teaching Social Studies, because it's important to be an engaged, knowledgeable citizen, with a clear understanding of the world we live in.  In my spare time, I like to foster kittens, decorate cookies, and spend time with my children, Sadie and Hayden.
