Welcome to 1st Grade!
Welcome to 1st grade! My name is Rachel Loria. This will be my 20th year of teaching. I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2000 with a degree in elementary education and with a specialization in reading. I also have my Master's Degree in collaborative teaching and learning. I love teaching 1st grade because it is a year of tremendous growth, socially and academically, for children.
When I am not at school, I lead a busy life with my family. My husband and I have four children and two dogs. We love to spend time outdoors hiking, fishing, and just being active. I am super excited to get back to school and start a new year in a new building! It's going to be a great year!
