I have created this website with the purpose of developing a partnership with my students and parents in order to encourage communication. Strong communication between home and school allows for maximizing student learning and positively impacting the classroom environment. The website will be updated weekly with home learning assignments, spelling and vocabulary words, and important reminders. Student resources will also be updated as needed. Please be sure to visit our website often!
My name is Michelle Kim Rigney-Simana and I am a first grade teacher at Coral Reef Elementary. The 2016-2017 school year marks my 11th year teaching for Miami-Dade County Public Schools. During this time, I had the pleasure of teaching kindergarten, first, second, third and third grade gifted. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Nova Southeastern University where I graduated with honors. I am also ESOL and Gifted certified.
