Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Rachel Williams and I am thrilled to have your child in my class this year! Together, we will make your child’s 5th grade year fun, stimulating, and most of all… ENJOYABLE! This is my eleventh year teaching at Belleview Elementary and it has been a dream come true! I am a graduate of Florida Southern University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. Additionally, I have an Associate's Degree from CentralFlorida where I majored in Early Childhood Development. Being a native Floridian, I attended this very school when I was in elementary school. Overall, it is my belief that positive and successful parent-teacher relationships begin with communication and therefore I am available to you by appointment, phone, or email. Please feel free to contact me regarding questions, concerns, or comments. I am excited to get to know you and work with you this year!
Misson For My Class
In a society where teachers and parents must compete with video games, television and social events, it is essential to make learning energetic, fun, and most of all, real. I believe for children to learn optimally, it is necessary that they see the connections between what happens in the classroom and how that knowledge will be useful in their world. My goal is to teach students the skills and values needed to achieve their dreams throughout life.
