Welcome to my classroom! My name is Miss Rachel Elder and I am looking forward to spending a fantastic year with you!  I received my degree in Elementary Education from Gardner-Webb University, and completed my masters of elementary education through Appalachian State University. I view each year as an opportunity to inspire students to find their passion and help them feel successful.  I love to see the individuality of each child and believe that this individualism should be celebrated.  I appreciate the opportunity to partner with you in your child’s education. Let’s make this year the best it can be!


Please feel free to contact me anytime. The most efficient way to reach me is via email.
