her family lived in a wood house built by her parents. Having spent
several of her early years without running water and wood heat, in some
ways she feels she has experienced a taste of life in the early 1900’s.
Rachel currently lives in the Mora area, appreciating the conveniences
of modern living. Her interests include continuing education,
philosophy, and history. She greatly enjoys her time in the classroom,
having a natural love of learning and working with children. Her
hobbies include baking, writing, traveling, and spending time with her
two young boys, Randy and Damian.
