River Valley is comprised of a variety of members and groups. Each constituency plays an important role in the functioning of the school. School Administration includes the Director of the school, Andy Willemsen and the Assistant Director, Jonnie Lyn Evans. The administrative team, along with the Special Education Coordinators, the Middle School Coordinator, the Technology Coordinator, and the Business Manager oversee the day to day operations of the school. In addition, the school employs a full-time School Nurse, School Counselor, and a part-time School Psychologist. Coordinators representing each of the four school levels (kindergarten, lower elementary, upper elementary, and middle school), work closely with the administration and form the school's Management Team.
Every grade K-6 classroom at River Valley is staffed with two adults: a Lead Teacher and an Assistant Teacher. There is a Middle School Coordinator and middle school teachers who are content-specific (language arts, mathematics, humanities, and science). Our K-6 lead teachers are experienced Montessori teachers with Montessori training and/or certifications, and our assistant teachers have, or soon after hiring, receive Montessori training as well. Middle school staff are also Montessori trained.
In addition to our Montessori professional staff, our faculty includes special education professionals and specialists in art, music, physical education, technology, and engineering.
