Karla Rivas

I received a B.A. in Business - Economics from UCLA in 2000. I started teaching math at Rialto High School about a year later. I then returned to school full-time to earn my M.A. in Mathematics from California State University San Bernardino. I taught part-time at CSUSB and San Bernardino Valley College before joining Mt. SAC. In 2014, I started at Mt. SAC as part-time faculty and I was hired as a full-time professor in 2015. I really love working at Mt. SAC because of the great colleagues and students I am fortunate to have.
