Rachel joins the MFS community as the Lower and Middle School Coding Teacher. After earning her B.S. in elementary education and English language arts at Hunter College, Rachel lived overseas and taught English in South Korea. Since that time, she has earned a M.S.Ed. in education technology from Pace University and worked as the technology department chair at Léman Manhattan Preparatory School, where she also taught technology to grades PK-5.  Most recently, Rachel worked as a 4th-grade teacher at Kellman Brown Academy.  

“I enjoy that the coding curriculum is relevant to our students’ world. Technology is constantly influencing our lives, and I love that coding class will help students understand how it all works,” said Rachel. She adds that she is excited to see where the students’ imagination will take the classes she teaches.

Rachel finds the power of learning exciting, and gets a thrill from exploring new stories and trying to understand the world around her. “I entered the field of education to play a role in the journey of discovery, and see it empower our future generation,” said Rachel.
