Hi
My name is Rachel and I am currently a 1st grade teacher at a Hillsborough County elementary school, B.C.Graham. I have been a teacher there for 4 years, and have taught both in 1st and Kindergarten.
During my 4 years of teaching, I have learned a lot from the ESE students and regular ed. students that I have taught. I have had experience teaching autistic students to read, write, and express themselves emotionally. Over the years, I have learned a lot about the different learning styles that students have and need to be successful.
I am excited to have the opportunity to teach not only the students in my classroom but tutor students one on one to encourage and help them to be successful.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

The will to learn must first come from the student, and then the possibilities are endless.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would first learn how the student feels about school. Then I discuss some of their strengths and weaknesses.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Through modeling and support until the learner feels confident in their work.
