My name is Toni Cuevas (Ms. Cuevas to the students) and I am a first grade teacher. It is my first year at Richmond College Prep and I am so blessed to call this school my community! I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA and recently graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont with a Bachelors' Degree in American Studies with a focus on Race and Ethnicity.
As a first-generation college student, I am very passionate about working with children of diverse backgrounds and experiences. I have worked with students of all ages (infant, toddler, middle and high school and college students) in a variety of settings (teacher's assistant, mentor, sports teams, summer tutor, etc.) and cannot wait to instill a love of learning and drive for success in my students. Family, culture and pride are very important to me, and you'll see that with the Mexican flag and family photos hanging behind my desk!
