RSM-Franklin is a branch of the Russian School of Mathematics, the award-winning, after-school math program for K-12 children that is based on the best practices of math schools in the former Soviet Union and Europe and adapted to the U.S. educational environment. Our mission is to help our students develop mathematical excellence and lifelong critical thinking skills using our unique curriculum and exceptional teachers.
RSM-Franklin will open for Summer School classes in July and will serve students from Franklin and the surrounding communities of Bellingham, Norfolk, Wrentham, Medway, Millis, Plainville, Braggville, Holliston, Mendon, Blackstone, North Attleboro (MA) and Cumberland, North Smithfield, Providence (RI).
About the Principal
Education: M.S., Applied Mathematics, M.S., Master Business Administration
Anna Rivero began her career in math early. A native of the Ukraine, Anna graduated from Dnipropetrovsk National University with a Master’s degree in Analytics of Computer Systems. She came to the United States as an MBA intern student and, after graduating, taught college and pre-college level mathematics courses for 5 years. During that time, she discovered that many of her students had struggled with math for years and lacked a fundamental understanding of why problems were solved in a certain way. Determined to find a solution, she joined RSM in July of 2014 to pursue her passion for teaching the European style of mathematics where it could do the most good: young minds.
It has always been a dream of Anna's to work at a school that focused on the development of each student’s ability to think mathematically, logically, abstractly and creatively. She is both a principal and a teacher, eager to help in big and small ways. Her favorite subject is Calculus, as it is the marriage of Algebra and Geometry, and can move beyond both.
As Principal of RSM-Franklin, Anna welcomes the opportunity to bring a deeper level of understanding and appreciation of math to an even wider range of students. Her son, in kindergarten, has begun RSM and loves his classes.
