A proud Boulder native, over the past 18 years, Rachel has taught and mentored middle school and high school students from Kansas to Paris, France to New York City to Denver and back to Boulder. She earned her B.S. from the University of Kansas in elementary/middle school education and special education, and her M.S. in special education from Bank Street College of Education in New York City.
Teaching at Hillside, with its talented staff and remarkable students and families, has been a highlight in her career, thus far. The vibrant Hillside environment inspires her to continue her own education in deepening her understanding of how the brain learns and functions and how to maximize its potential. In her spare time, she enjoys digging in her garden, meeting friends for coffee, people watching on Pearl Street, and playing with her two, sweet, little girls.
