Meet our Director of Bilingual Education & Community Education! 


EMHCS is excited to welcome a new face to our family! Leslie Rivera is our new Director of Bilingual Education & Community Relations.

Rivera comes to us with more than a decade of educational experience. A former teacher, coach and assistant principal, she's also worked as a community school site coordinator. Her formal education includes multiple professional certifications, a Bachelor’s Degree from Geneseo College, a Masters from Brockport College and an Advanced Certificate of School District Leadership K-12 from the U of R Warner School.

We're also excited about her many years working in and serving the community. She has participated in community initiatives, board / committee memberships and was also part of the Monroe County Legislature – District 29. She said she's passionate about the Rochester area and can't wait to include this love in her new position:

"I am most excited about the work. My passion has always been bilingual education and serving my community. Though I have worked in bilingual schools my entire career, I am excited to actually be able to be at the forefront of making positive changes in instruction and program to better serve our students. Working in the community where I live, helping to improve and provide equity to our bilingual program and creating a network of community partners to support and enrich what is already established is my mission."
