Hello! My name is Rivi and I’m looking forward to getting to know you. I enjoy drawing, reading and writing, being outdoors, and taking dance classes. And my work as a professor of Chinese language and literature brings me into contact with students and colleagues from all over the world. Friends and family are extremely important to me, as are the values of honesty, empathy, and education. I am eager to welcome a child into my home and to nurture the child’s creativity and curiosity about the world. I hope that by exploring this website you will be able to envision the unusual and fascinating life I hope to provide for this child.
I promise to help your child attain her or his greatest potential: ethically, physically, and intellectually, to grow up safe and loved, healthy, respected, and cherished by family and many friends.
In my home your child will be expected always to do his or her best and to be honest and kind. He or she will have access to the finest education and will gain a deep understanding of other cultures.
I will do everything I can to ensure that your child becomes a creative and independent thinker, a caring, ethical human being, a responsible member of society, and a delight to know.
