HI, I'M RACHEL

A special education teacher with certifications in elementary education & child and adolescent trauma. With a masters in curriculum & instruction, I strive to create meaningful educational experiences for students with trauma histories.

I love sharing ideas, collaborating, and finding creative ways to reach students. When I'm out of the classroom, I enjoy cooking, listening to music, and renovating our new home!
