Hello! My name is Rachael Clarisse, and I am so excited to be teaching 2nd grade this year at Eldorado Elementary!  I graduated in 2021 from the University of Northern Colorado with my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and an emphasis in special education. I completed my student teaching early 2021 at Eldorado in 2nd grade. From 2021- 2022 I taught second grade at Academy Charter. Since 2022, I have joined the Eldorado family! When I’m not at school, you will find me playing new board/card games with my family, going hiking, watching thriller movies, and reading with my book club! I live in Highlands Ranch and love to explore all that Colorado has to offer, including its fantastic escape rooms. I absolutely love teaching and working with children.
