Ms. Rachel Foster



Hello! My name is Ms. Foster and I am the Kindergarten teacher. I received my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education from Elmhurst University. This year is my seventh year teaching. Kindergarten has been my favorite grade to teach, because  I love seeing how much the students grow as they begin to read, write, and become more independent. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, shopping, traveling, and watching movies. It is my mission to provide my students with a welcoming learning environment for them to grow, build friendships, explore their curiosity, gain confidence, and celebrate their mistakes as a learning opportunity.
