Tonya Rivers » Greetings


My name is Tonya B. Rivers and this is my 8th year at H.E.S.!  I come from a military family, so I grew up and traveled to U.S. Army bases all over the world, including stops in Germany, Arizona, Kentucky, Georgia and my home state of South Carolina.  I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Winthrop University.
As you know, we have started the 2020-2021 school year virtually and this learning experience will be enhanced through utilizing computers in an online environment.  Virtual learning, often called e-Learning or digital learning, allow teachers to instruct through a virtual classroom environment. Therefore, technology will be utilized now more than ever.  Here at HES, we are bridging social distancing with technology. Technology can encourage self-paced learning and help educators give each student the attention he or she needs. Technology can help make teaching and learning more meaningful and fun.  I intend to do just that in the computer lab.  I am an extension of the classroom teacher.  I will provide support and instruction to students by assigning web-based programs.
