Mrs. Rachel Whitt
My name is Rachel Whitt, and I am a first-grade teacher. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of North Alabama. I recently got married, so some of you may know me as Rachel Bowman!
In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing soccer, running, hiking, and spending time with my family. I am from Athens, and I am a graduate from Athens High School. I have two brothers and a sister (see picture), and we live in three different states.
I became a teacher because I am passionate about helping children reach their full potential and seeing children grow and succeed. I believe teaching is my calling, and I am devoted to investing in each student. I am looking forward to getting to know each individual student this year and helping them learn. My hope is that by the end of the year, the students in my room will believe in themselves as much as I believe in them!
Gold Take Home Folders
Each student will be given a gold take home folder on the first day of school. It is very important to take great care of these folders and return them to school each day. This folder will contain all of the work that we complete in class throughout the day and any important notes that you may need to see!
