Principal: Tim Doherty
I am thrilled to join the Riverview family, and I want to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. As your principal, it is my sincere pleasure to work with our dedicated teachers, staff, and community to provide the highest quality education for our Jr. Sobos.
After graduating from Harlem High School, I went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics Education from Northern Illinois University in 2012. I completed my Master’s Degree in Administration and Supervision from the University of Phoenix in 2017. Professionally, I taught 2nd through 12th grade in various capacities over the course of eight years, primarily in math. I also served as the Director of Middle and Upper School for two years at Keith Country Day School in Rockford before coming to South Beloit. Most recently, I was the Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at South Beloit Jr. High and Blackhawk Elementary. I love South Beloit, and I am excited for the opportunity to lead in this community.
I am committed to ensuring that Riverview is a safe and welcoming environment in which students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Additionally, I want students to enjoy coming to school and learning new things every day. Learning should be fun! This school year, students will be encouraged to become lifelong learners and positive contributors in their community. They will be challenged to take risks, try new things, meet new friends, and grow as both students and people. Parents are encouraged to get involved and invest in their child’s education and future. We have all heard that it takes a village to raise a child – this is true for education as well. Parents, teachers, staff, community members, and administration must work as a team to ensure that all students have the best opportunity to succeed. Together, our village can make a difference.
Thank you for your commitment to the South Beloit School District and for your continued support. I look forward to a great school year.
