Trent BakichHi. My name is Trent Bakich, and I am the ELD Coordinator, and I also teach 7th and 8th Grade Social Studies here at Riverside. I have lived in the valley since 2007, and I am entering my 12th year as a Viking! I love my family and the time that we spend together. I enjoy getting outdoors, but my passion is finding something new to learn, focusing all of my energy on understanding it, and moving on to something else. I am looking forward to the year as we all come together to try to make it as normal as possible again!
