Mrs. Anita Shively


Welcome to 5th grade! I am so pleased to teach 5th grade English / Language Arts at Riverwood Elementary School. If you are in my class this year, I am excited about meeting you.


My name is Anita Shively and this is my ninth year teaching at RES. I am originally from Riverside, CA, where I grew up, studied at the University of California, got married, and had three kids. My family has lived in Clayton for 21 years. We love being a part of this community and call this place "HOME". In addition to teaching, I am a pastor at a local church. I like to travel, eat good food, and work in my garden. I look forward to all the fun and learning that we will do this year. I am glad that you will be joining me!
