Mrs. Christine Rives


First off, Welcome to Chapin Elementary.  I am super excited to be your child's teacher this year.  This is my 21st year of teaching, however, my very first at Chapin Elementary!   I was born and raised in Summerville, South Carolina and graduated from the College of Charleston with a Bachelor of Science in Special Education.  I also have my National Board Certification in Exceptional Children.   I am married to a wonderful man who also happens to be a teacher in Lexington Richland 5.  We have 3 children, our son just graduated from Chapin High and is currently pursuing his degree in Special Education.  We also have 2 daughters, a sophomore at CHS and a 4th grader at CES.  We are definitely an Eagle family!  When I'm not teaching my girls keep me very busy with All-Star Cheer and soccer.  We also share our house with 2 pups who require a lot of attention to stay out of trouble.   

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, hanging out at the lake, doing crafts, and cheering for the Eagles on the football and soccer fields as well as the cheer mat!
