Lower Elementary Teachers

Rachel Rarick

Lower Elementary Teacher

I came to Montessori from a background in science and outdoor education. I love that the Montessori philosophy fosters the children's independence and ignites their curiosity and joyful pursuit of knowledge. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two dogs, kayaking, hiking, reading, traveling, and doing crafts.

Favorite Quote: "Persistent work, clarity of ideas, the habit of sifting conflicting motives in the consciousness, even in the minutest actions of life, decisions taken every moment on the smallest of things, the gradual mastery over one's actions, the power of self-direction increasing by degrees in the sum of successively repeated acts, these are the stout little stones on which the structure of personality, will and work is built up." - Maria Montessori
