Ms. Risa Lopez-Mitchell

Welcome to the new school year! I am Ms. Lopez-Mitchell and I am SO excited to be your teacher this year! This is my first year teaching at East Elementary, although I have been a Paraprofessional at our wonderful school since 2021 and a proud member of the Waynesville R-VI School District since 2015. 

I am really looking forward to getting to know all of my students and helping them learn, grow, and achieve their goals.  Let's have a great year!
