Welcome to Ms. Rifai's 2nd Grade Class!
Hello, my name is Ms. Rifai. I graduated from Deer Park High School in 1997. After graduating from high school, I went to the University of Houston. At the University of Houston, I earned a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Education) with a minor in Reading. I began my teaching career as a fourth grade teacher in Pasadena ISD. When my son was born in 2005, I decided to take a step back from being a teacher in order to focus on learning how to be a new mom. My husband of 15 years and I now have 4 children. My oldest child started Kindergarten here at Fairmont Elementary and now attends Deer Park High School. Our three other children are here at Fairmont Elementary. I LOVE teaching, and I missed being in the classroom. When my youngest child started Kindergarten, I decided to go back into the classroom as a substitute teacher at FE. Now, here I am looking forward to a wonderful year together! I cannot wait to see the amazing things you are going to accomplish this year! The sky is the limit!
