|Hey y'all! My name is Rachel Riley and I am super excited to be teaching the best grade ever! (I have taught several different areas but I must say first grade is the best!) I graduated with a bachelors degree in Special Education and General Education from Samford University in Birmingham in 2009 and am certified to each a whole range of students - from birth to 6th grade - but FIRST GRADE is my absolute favorite! Oh and even though I graduated from SU, I only pull for the Tide!!
Meet my babies...
Carly (the big one) and Nibbler (the little guy). Tippy and Pickles will make their appearances on this page soon. :)
When I'm not at school, I come home to my own personal zoo. I love animals and have a strong passion for saving strays and finding homes for pets who need a loving home. I have three dogs, Nibbler, Carly, and Mr. Bandit as well as two cats, Tippy and Pickles. I consider them my furry kids.
I also have a human baby that entered the world in 2018! Ryan Riley is the best addition to our family! He is quite the character and loves to play "rough" with everyone - including the pups - maybe the pups have taught him this? Eeek.... Ha! I talk about our furry family and my son often so don't be surprised if you hear a lot about the babes in my fam! I consider all of us one big happy family - your child and your family included!
