1st Grade

Hi and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. My name is Rachel lease and I am excited to be sharing a class with Judi Michael this year. 

I was fortunate enough to grow up in a military family where I had the opportunity to live in many interesting places. Before I started high school my family settled in Carroll County. I graduated from Hood College with a Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education. In 2015, I earned my Master's Degree in Special Education from McDaniel College. This is my ninth year teaching in Frederick County. I previously taught Pre-K at Twin Ridge Elementary and First Grade and Kindergarten here at Whittier.

Outside of teaching I enjoy watching REDSKINS football, traveling (especially to the beach), camping, taking care of baby calves at my family's farm and spending time with my family and friends.
I am very excited to be teaching First Grade at Whittier Elementary School this year and am eager to get to know each and everyone of you!
