Welcome to Second Grade!

Hi!  I'm Rachel Reyes and am in my 31st year with Saint Paul Schools. (Yes, I'm very, very old.  I was born before iPhones, DVDs and even Pampers.  Yikes!)  Since coming to Cherokee Heights seven years ago I've taught grades 4, 3, 2, 1 and will be looping with my 1st graders to 2nd grade this year. 

I grew up and continue to live on the West Side attending Roosevelt (now Riverview) Elementary, swam right here at our own Cherokee pool and graduated from Humboldt High School.  I have an A.A. degree from Inver Hills Community College and a B.S. in Elementary Education from Bemidji State University.  

Five things to know about me include:

  1. I am addicted to coffee and chocolate.
  2. I love heights: cliffs, mountains, Power Tower at Valleyfair etc.
  3. I enjoy watching MN sports teams: Lynx, Vikings, Wild, Twins, and the San Antonio Spurs (sorry Timberwolves).
  4. Lake Superior is one of my favorite places to be or on any lake or river. 
  5. I still watch Disney movies: Moana, Beauty and The Beast, Despicable Me 3, Cars 3 but The Lion King is still my favorite.

I'm looking forward to a great year!
