I can’t imagine teaching anywhere else. Co-teaching is an incredible thing, every day you have someone to bounce ideas off and someone to help you grow as a teacher and a person. The student/teacher relationship at CRS is unique. The relationships you can build with students and parents are ones that can last a lifetime.
Rachel joined CRS in 1999, working in both fifth and sixth grades, transitioning to the fifth-grade co-teacher a few years later. Prior to teaching at CRS, Rachel worked in the Cambridge Public Schools and at Belmont Day School. Rachel has a passion for helping students understand the many ways in which different curricular topics connect, not just to each other but also to the wider world. Fostering curiosity is an important aspect of the fifth-grade experience. She holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Connecticut College, a graduate diploma from the New England School of Art and Design, and a master’s in education from Lesley University with an emphasis on integrating art into the curriculum.
