Lacy Rivera, You're NM's Milken EducatorLos Lunas High School | Los Lunas, NM | Oct 22, 2019
Lacy Rivera catches her breath during a quiet moment after her surprise Milken Educator Award notification. Positive and hopeful, Lacy motivates colleagues with unending optimism and a growth mindset, always grounding her suggestions in data and the latest research. Last year she developed an intervention program for use by Algebra I teachers at LLHS; by the end of the year, student scores rose 20% on PARCC math assessments. Thanks to Lacy's support, LLHS saw a boost in teacher retention last year—not a single teacher left the school.
