Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Rachel Reyes
Welcome to First Grade!
Hi! My name is Rachel Reyes and this is my first year at Hazel Park Preparatory Academy but my 32nd year with Saint Paul Schools. Yes, I am very, very old. I was born well before iPhones, DVDs and even Pampers-Yikes! I have worked with most grades, including middle school and high school.
Five things to know about me include:
1. I love coffee and chocolate. I even ate chocolate covered ants.
2. I like heights: cliffs, mountains and the Power Tower at Valleyfair.
3. I enjoy watching Minnesota sports teams: Lynx, Vikings, Wild, Twins but prefer the San Antonio Spurs (sorry Timberwolves).
4. Lake Superior is one of favorite places to be especially Sleeping Giant Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada.
5. I still watch Disney movies: Moana, Cars, but the Lion King and Leo & Stitch are still my favorites. I also like Baby Yoda in the Mandalorian.
I am looking forward to a great year!
