3rd/4th Grade Teacher
Rachael began teaching at Humboldt in the fall of 2013. She grew up in Des Plaines, Illinois and now currently lives in the neighborhood. Rachael double majored in Elementary and Middle Level Education from Northeastern Illinois University. Rachael taught for an after school enrichment program and tutored before coming to Humboldt. She enjoys teaching at Humboldt with such a great community of staff and families. Her favorite part of Humboldt is being able to challenge students not only in academics, but integrate biblical truths and character for each student's growth. Her favorite bible passage is from Ephesians 3:16-19 " I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rootedi and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
