• Hello! My name is Rachel Francisco and I’m thrilled that I have been given the opportunity to teach your children this year.  I grew up in the local area and love calling the triad area home.  This year will be my first year teaching.  My undergraduate teaching degree is from East Carolina University and I completed my student teaching in a Kindergarten classroom at H.B. Sugg Elementary School.  I am a huge Carolina Panthers fan! During football season, I watch their games every Sunday. I love animals, especially cats and have a very special cat named Cam (named after Cam Newton) that I love spending time with.  Some other things I enjoy are reading, spending time with friends and family, and taking trips.  I’m looking forward to meeting and getting to know you all.  It’s going to be a great year together! :)
