Ms. Riffaya Rajid


This is my fifth year at East, teaching 6th grade Science and STEM 1 & 2. I believe students learn in a variety of ways, so I am dedicated to incorporating a wide range of teaching methods. As a community of learners, we will all grow as a class and individually.  

I'm currently pursing a master's degree in Instructional Science and Technology at CSUMB. I have a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies from University of Houston. I went to middle and high school in Singapore. When I was in third grade our family moved from India to Singapore and it was probably the most life-changing experience I've ever had as a kid. 

Currently, I live in Dublin with my husband, my two children and our dog. I enjoy cooking, playing the guitar and yoga.
