Rachel has been teaching English as a Second Language for 10 years and specializes in experience learning. She believes that students learn best when the content is not just teaching them English, but something about themselves. Rachel likes to approach the classroom as a meaningful experience where everyone has a voice. She loves using her voice to speak in Japanese as well. Rachel has her Bachelor’s degree in English and Writing from Oregon State University and is finishing up her Master’s degree in Teaching at Western Oregon University with an Oregon teaching license endorsement in the following areas: English as a Second Language, Middle and High School English Language Arts, and Special Education.
