Math and Science Teacher/Mentor
Rachel graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Science in Speech Language Pathology and Audiology and has a minor in pediatrics. While she was in graduate school for her Masters in speech language pathology, she found out her true passion was for teaching and changed the direction of her educational pursuits. She is currently working through an alternate certification program online and will soon have her teaching certification for middle school and high school science. Rachel has always had an affinity for science all throughout school, even in her early educational years, and is especially passionate about biology.
Being home schooled allowed Rachel the privilege of unofficially tutoring students in different subjects throughout high school who were a part of her home school co-op. She has always enjoyed helping others learn and succeed and was also able to help tutor her college peers as well. Rachel was given the opportunity in college to work as a student lab assistant in a biology course and unbeknownst to her at the time, her love for teaching was steadily growing. She volunteered her time with the Good News Bible Club during high school, she has volunteered as a camp counselor for many years, and she also taught junior speech at her speech and debate club for a few years after graduating. Rachel has always loved to learn and is excited to have the opportunity to teach and help inspire the next generation.
