Rachael Clarisse - 3rd Grade Teacher

Hello! My name is Rachael Clarisse, and I am so excited to be teaching 3rd grade this year at Eldorado Elementary! Growing up, this was my favorite grade! I graduated in 2021 from the University of Northern Colorado with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education and an emphasis in special education. I taught 2nd grade in Castle Rock last year and did my student teaching in early 2021 at Eldorado in 2nd grade. 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.
