My name is Rachel Schauer. I have been teaching elementary education for 12-enjoyable years. I've taught every grade level, but spent the majority of my teaching career at 5th Grade and the last four years teaching 5th Grade Ignite. I.G.N.I.T.E. - Inquiry and Gifted Network for Ingenuity and Talent Exploration.
My philosophy is simple: Students need to explore, socialize, communicate, and reflect to do their best learning. They get these opportunities in Ignite! They also need breaks throughout the day and to feel they belong to an enjoyable and respectful community of learners; a foundation that we work hard to build and maintain throughout the school year.
My endorsements include Elementary Education (Grades K - 9) and English as a Second Language. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Education from National Louis University and my Master's Degree in Education from Judson College.
