Degrees and Certifications:
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:
- I am addicted to coffee and chocolate.
- I love heights: cliffs, mountains, Power Tower at Valleyfair etc.
- I enjoy watching MN sports teams: Lynx, Vikings, Wild, Twins, and the San Antonio Spurs (sorry Timberwolves).
- Lake Superior is one of my favorite places to be or on any lake or river.
- 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!
